Near-Great Moments in Space Travel

1965 — Having successfully escaped from the Cape Canaveral Zoo, stowaway Sherman Hoovermeyer would have been the first meerkat in outer space… but unfortunately he chose to hide directly beneath the first stage rocket booster.

Live Meerkat Maniacs, Right Here.

Who doesn’t like ‘em some Bebeh Maniac Meerkats? The Youtube links below are a preview….the LIVE LIVE LIVE CAM is right here.

From Andrea D., who adds, “Everyone needs a few meerkat bebehs in their day.”

We Had A Meerkat Monday In 2011

Meerkat ToyboxThree years ago? It’s time for another one.

Fellow Earthlings Wildlife Center near Palm Springs, California cares for Meerkats with nowhere else to go. They take in Meerkats and give them a sweet home to live out their Happy Meerkat Lives!

The only reason they have toys and are interacting with people is these guys were born in captivity–so they can’t be released into the wild. And they do NOT make good pets. This is a private facility- not open to the public- but if you “adopt a meerkat” you can set up a visit where you’ll help serve lunch. Mmmmmm, anyone for seconds?
