Little Friends by Kirsten Bruening

Meerkats are biathlon cats, but are more akin to bears or hyenas. The typical attitude of a meerkat? On the hind legs, the eyes attentively directed into the distance. Meerkats are very social animals and also share the work. While some work on the construction, the others look out for possible dangers. We could watch these beautiful animals on a trip to the Cologne Zoo.
