Nature provides us with plenty of wonderful things. From the beauty of untamed beasts to breathtaking landscapes, every complex detail renders us speechless.
Japanese photographer mamekoro51 has most likely the most pleasant hobby one might imagine – taking photos of baby animals of varied types.
On a recent visit to Inokashira Natural Cultural Park in Musashino city, Tokyo, the animal lover found a lovable meerkat family with newborn pups, one among whom was a bit shy for the camera.
The meerkat is a tiny carnivoran within the mongoose family. Meerkats live in all parts of the Kalahari Desert in Botswana, in abundant of the Namib Desert in Namibia and southwestern Angola, and South Africa.
Meerkats babysit the young within the group. Females that have never made offspring of their own often lactate to feed the alpha pair’s young and they also defend the young from threats, endangering their own lives.
The images captured them in their most mischievous state and I should admit, I didn’t know that meerkats could be so darn cute! Have a look for yourselves!
Peeping cautiously from behind a wall, this tiny meerkat gave the impression to be afraid initially. However, after a little time, it emerged from its spot to say hello, and other people are simply in love.
