        Meerkats: Desert Specialists

        This video segment introduces and explores the lives of meerkats. Inhabiting the African plains, meerkats are "desert specialists" that have evolved and adapted to a harsh climate. Adult meerkats are very involved in raising young, and all adult meerkats within a mob, or community, play a part in teaching the babies how to play, forage, and protect themselves from danger.
