With beautiful illustrations and a meerkat's-eye view of life in the Kalahari,Meerkat Manoralso contains an easy-to-understand introduction to animal societies, meerkats, their predators and prey.Like humans, meerkats can be cute, cuddly, affectionate, fearless, and amazingly unselfish; also like us, they can become vicious, vindictive, and even murderous within a split second. By explaining the lives of the Whiskers, Clutton-Brock shares his perspective on how the lives of all animals (including humans) are structured by the need both to compete and to cooperate.

Because they are so cute and cuddly looking - You may find yourself seriously considering acquiring a meerkat as a house-pet - But - Whatever you do - Don't act on this un-cool impulse.

Meerkats (who are not domesticated) make terrible pets. You'll find out much more info on this subject when you read through this enlightening book about these amusing, little animals.

To be sure - Meerkats are definitely one of the most fascinating and enjoyable-to-observe creatures in this biologically diverse world of ours. They really are.

This wonderful, well-researched book (that includes lots of great, full-colour photos) tells you everything that you've ever wanted to know about meerkats, but just didn't know who to ask.
