In the wild the lion would kill and eat the offspring, just tiffing time I thinks. hehe

ST Yes i remember him so well.Oh my god i cannot believe johnny morris i loved the way he spoke about the animals,its just like the simpsons for kids but for adults aswell.His wording was superb.Nicely spotted.:))))

Hi 6d in the wild you are wrong he will only kill offspring not his own .but he lives with his wife and kids now in a wildlife park and he protects them all from the other prides in the wildlife park lol:)))))

29 Aug, 2011


Hi Shirley i am not taking all the credit for this blog,as my wife sorted it all out for me but the main stars were the animals.Thankyou for your kind comment.:)))

Hi Nana thankyou for agreeing and thankyou for your comment:))))

Hi Sanbaz it was a great day we all loved every minute,Some of the pictures were a bit blurred taking pictures through glass etc my camera would just not do it.Thankyou so much:)))))

Hi Hollyeves,it seems a lot of people love the meerkats ,
We did find out from a talk about the meerkats that a lot of people in the uk keep them as pets in cages which is very distressing for them ,therefore about 90% of them die or end up in vets or dumped somewhere.How naive are people.It makes me sick to even think about it.Thankyou for your comment.

Arr thats a shame mark... you wouldnt think people would have them as pets would you....
