Tickling a meerkat

Giggling Meerkat

Meerkats, once famous for their group spirit and dealing with the adversity of their desert life, are now more famous, at least in the UK, for being confused with an insurance website.  For those outside the UK, that might be a bit harder to explain.  However, I saw this video of a giggling meerkat on YouTube today and thought that I had to share it.  If you ever wanted to know what a laughing meerkat sounds like, here it is.  And yes, tickling a meerkat does appear to elicit a reaction that results in a giggling meerkat.


So here is the meerkat with a fit of the giggles.
