Meerkat Encounter

Meerkat Encounter

Get mobbed by our little Meerkat family as the keepers place one of their daily feeds on your lap! Watch them scurry around all over you as they try to grab every piece of their favourite food. Listen to our carnivore keepers as they tell you all about Taronga's Meerkat mob and all the mischief they get up to! Learn about their hierarchy, their social interactions and how they keep each other safe when danger is near.
