Christ festiville

Hi, i hope you all had a wonderful Christian festival all over the world.
All three the baby's are doing great. You remember i told you that the meerkat's share their burrows with all kind of creatures like bug's, ruts, mongoose and snakes, and that i have recently found a 1,8m cobra skin at the entrance to the burrow that the meerkats were using. well it seem's like Moner ( the dominant male) had a run in with this snake. I don't know what happened to the snake, but Moner had a bite on one of his back leg's and is still recovering.

3 Survivors

3 Baby's have survived. Very shortly after their birth i found a very fresh s 1.8m cobra skin in one of the entrances to their burrows. but that's the way nature roles, you win some you lose some. The baby's are out foraging with the grownups already. 14 members and Liefie is already pregnant again.

2 baby's

well it look like the family has grown to 13. Very odd, for a meerkats can have up to 5 baby's. but then i must say there was a cobra in the burrow last week. I found a 1.8 m skin coming out of one of the burrows. We will watch closely maby they are hiding 1 or 2 baby's.
