Meerkat Mania At The Oakland Zoo

A bunch mob of these little guys just checked into life at The Oakland Zoo, and Cuteporter Simone P. wanted to make sure we knew about it! (Note- it appears the video has no sound. They should try this!)

  1. Aww, poor meerkat in the last pic looks like he got lost and feel asleep in the woods.

  2. What’s cuter than mommy and daddy meerkats? Why, suckling, snuggly bebbeh meerkats, of course. 🙂

  3. Love the Oakland zoo and the meerkat display is really fun!!

    The third one: “Ninety-eight…ninety-nine…a hundred…Ready or not, here I come!”

  5. Sharon Wilson says:

    Yaay! The Kelley Park Zoo in San Jose has a meerkat exhibit, too, and they’re great! Everybody flocks to see them when they come aboveground. I bet they do here, too!

  6. The meerkat habitat at the NC Zoological Park is endlessly fascinating to me. I could watch them for hours if the lovely hubby wouldn’t drag me away.

  7. The Original Jane says:

    Gaaaah! Meerkats! Hand over the babies and nobody gets hurt. (maybe I should come back when they have a TON more and no one will miss a few, right?)

  8. All of my cats are mere felines so I would love to have a meerkat 😉

  9. Best thing about meercats is when they stand on their hindlegs. It´s adorabuhls. Makes me squeeeeeeee!

  10. Are these guys being overfed? I never saw a fat meerkat on “Meerkat Manor.”
