The remarkable collection of photographs in this book provide a rare insight into the fascinating world of meerkats. Here these endearing little carnivores appear in their many moods and in a wide variety of daily activities, from grooming one ather to taking turns on guard duty, and from catching scorpions and small reptiles to setting forth to do battle with rival mobs. This stunning portfolio is accompanied by an informative and readable text which provides an overview of the meerkats' lifestyle and behaviour, and examines their social make-up and adaptations to a hostile environment.
