10 Pictures of Three-Week-Old Baby Meerkats That Will Make You Say Aww

April 10, 2014

Meerkats are pretty darn cute. With their tall, slender bodies and expressive faces, these critters are often caught perched on their two hind feet, scanning the savanna for predators. That being said, baby meerkats are even cuter. Photographer Will Burrard-Lucas recently traveled to the Makgadikgadi Pans region of Botswana to snap pictures of the beloved creatures. While there, Burrard-Lucas had the pleasure of capturing various images of a meerkat community that included some three-week-old baby meerkats. The resulting photos are playful, adorable and sure to brighten your day.

As you can see in this short clip, the baby meerkats enjoyed the photoshoot almost as much as Burrard-Lucas did:

Tigers and Pigs

At the Sriracha Tiger Zoo in Thailand, tigers and pigs have learned to co-habitat with each other to the point of rearing each others offspring. Interestingly, the Royal Bengali tigress shown above nursing piglets was born in captivity and breast-fed by a female pig for four months after her birth.

The mixing of pigs and tigers, especially of their piglets and cubs, is common form of visual entertainment provided by the zoo for the amusement of the visitors.
