Cute Meerkats Use Photographer As A Lookout Post


00:06
COMM: This wildlife photographer got a little more than he bargained for, on a trip to Botswana. 00:11
WILL: So I’m in the Makgadikgadi region of Botswana, and I’ve come here to photograph
one of my favourite little creatures, meerkats. 00:20
COMM: Will Burrard – Lucas spent six days photographing this meerkat family, and their
inquisitive new editions. 00:30
COMM: Attracted to Will’s camera, the babies were fascinated with their new toy. 00:37
COMM: As the kids played, a protective parents took on the roll of sentry, instinctively
using Will as a makeshift lookout post, scanning for potential dangers. 00:46
WILL: Now when you’re the size of a meerkat in Africa, you’ll find a lot of things want
to eat you, so you always have to remain very vigilant, however if you only stand a foot
off the ground it can sometimes be hard to see over the long grass, so these enterprising
meerkats have discovered that humans make very handy lookout posts. 01:05
COMM: Watching over newborns may be a tiring task, but this sentry still found time for
some playful snaps.

    Cute Meerkats Use Photographer As A Lookout Post

    SUBSCRIBE: http://bit.ly/Oc61Hj

    THESE adorable Meerkats used a photographer as a look out post before trying their hand at taking pictures. The beautiful images were caught by wildlife photographer Will Burrard-Lucas after he spent six days with the quirky new families in the Makgadikgadi region of Botswana. Will has photographed Meerkats in the past and was delighted when he realised he would be shooting new arrivals.

    Shows a reasonable level of intelligence, first realising that humans aren't a treat, and then taking the brave step of using them as lookout platforms. That considering that they are usually on everybody's menu
