Bonus Video: Quokka Kisses, with Meerkats

Nooze has left a bad taste in my mouth. Time for an antidote: quokka kisses! Along with some frisky meerkats, at Wildlife HQ Zoo. Would you like to trade places with this keeper?

Did Somebody Say ‘Meerkats’?

Somebody’s been dropping hints about meerkats, not that I need a lot of prodding to post some meerkat video. They’ve gotten very popular because they like to stand on their hind legs and look like they understand what’s happening around them.

These are actually African mongooses (mongeese?) who live in small colonies–sort of like mongooses trying to be prairie dogs.
