Capturing A Shy Baby Meerkat And Its Family In Photos Makes Your Work Pleasant

Taking photos of baby animals should be the most pleasant profession or hobby one could imagine having.

The photographer from Japan, with his username ‘mamekoro51’, is an animal lover who during his visit to Inokashira Natural Cultural Park in Musashino City in Tokyo, got to meet an adorable meerkat family with their pups. One of the pups was a little for the camera, which is captured very admirable on the photos.

Peeping carefully from the corner of a wall, the meerkat puppy first gave the impression of being afraid. But, after a while, the puppy showed itself and people seem to simply fall in love!

Meerkats live in the Kalahari Desert in Botswana, in Namib Desert of Namibia, in southwestern Angola, and in South Africa.

Like many other species, meerkats learn by observing and mimicking adult behavior, although adults also engage themselves in giving instructions. They would teach the pups the right way to eat a venomous scorpion, while at first, they would remove the stinger and then teach them young how to deal with the creature.

Despite this helping behavior, adult meerkats sometimes have known to kill young members of their group in order to improve their offspring’s position.

Meerkats become sexually mature at about two years of age and they can have one to four pups in a litter. Whereas, the pups can leave their burrow at only two to three weeks old.
