Meet the lively Meerkat family of Taronga Zoo Sydney. Watch this ramshackle troop at feeding time as they munch on insects, fruits, and vegetables. You learn about their social hierarchy, preferred insect treats, and how their dark fur helps them survive in the hot sun of their native southern Africa.
