It's an early start, but what a thrill. Devey's timing was perfect: we set up our chairs around the meerkats' current burrow entrance, and a minute or two later a meerkat popped its head out and stood alert, then another and another and some babies until they were all out, facing the sun. They expose a panel on their stomachs to the sun, and get their metabolisms working. Really then, all they did was act cute, to perfection, the babies tumbling round and the adults making amusing rows, with their heads all turned in the same direction. Very photogenic.
Devey explained that there's no knowing how long this warming up procedure will take. When they'd had enough they scooted off to look for breakfast, and we did too.
