Went to take some pictures of local meerkats today at Tropiquaria in West Somerset.
This one was on duty, while the rest of them viciously played together on the floor, snarling away at each other, mouths open with rows of very sharp looking teeth.
The babies were so tiny about 6 inches tall, they were all scratching away at the ground and themselves....and all the time this one remained on sentry duty looking from left to right and all around, he was very obliging when I called him and looked straight at the camera !

What did you call him? Smile

They give you a very level, wide-eyed gaze, unflinching, & not a sign of fear. You'd think that they were bigger & more capable of putting up a fight.

Great shot. I like the eye contact.
