Description

MEERKAT MANOR is the true-life story of Flower, the heroine of the successful television series, and the dominant female of Whiskers group. Through words and superb photographs, the reader becomes closely involved in the life-or-death struggles, just like a soap opera, of this curiously attractive tribe. MEERKAT MANOR not only describes what meerkats do, but explains why they do it, providing important insights into the working of other animal societies, including humans. 'They look cute and their teamwork has led some to suggest they are ideal role models for humans, but ...if MEERKAT MANOR is billed as a soap opera, it is one scripted by Quentin Tarantino' Mail on Sunday.show more
