Radar and infrared cameras reveal the inside of a meerkat den for the first time in this video from the NATURE mini-series Animals with Cameras. The footage reveals a whole new group dynamic; in the privacy of the den the meerkat leader lets her guard down and stops keeping lower-ranking females at arm’s reach.
