I happened upon the Meerkats at Animal Kingdom just as their feeding and enrichment was beginning. It was great to watch as the first one timidly emerged from the hole to see is everything was safe. A few more minutes went by before the 2nd one peered out.
After about 10 minutes, the animal keeper had them all running back and forth for their “meatballs”. Just image how FAST this little meerkat was jumping up for food! I managed to get him on 2 legs and mouth wide open. If this isn’t an action shot, I don’t know what is!
