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.

Get Smart, Stay Warm

In the colder months, the Secret Society of Master Meerkats prefers to hold its private discussions under the heated Cone of Silence.

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?

Worms inside a ball. That’s pretty much as good as it gets here.
