Nature

Posturing Meerkat Pups

Clip: Season 31 Episode 12 | 1m 19s

In the Botswana’s Makgadikgadi Pans, meerkat pups struggle to master the animal's signature upright posture while the adults go in search of food. An adult will often stay behind and babysit the pups while the other meerkats are away from the den. "Great Zebra Exodus" premieres May 15, 2013 at 8/7c (check local listings).
