Camera Crew Meets Meerkats (Video)


This BBC cameraman has filmed plenty of animals in the wild. But unlike gorillas or elephants, these meerkats get up close and personal with humans with ease. As the narrator points out, the camera crew was not intending on interfering with their natural routines. That said, however, these meerkats are quite accustomed to human presence — they’ve been studied by scientists in the wild for quite some time, and view humans as, “part of the landscape.”

Very cute video. The BBC crew has a wonderful sense of humor and the meerkats had a good time playing with them. It would be nice if all humans were as kind.

I think they might like to have some of us as "pets", but I agree with Joe R. and say for them to be wary. People are not to be trusted.

They are adorable. I'd like to have one for a pet.
