Meet the Meerkats. (Suricate)
This family lives in the Kalahari desert of South Africa.
"Bubbles" is pregnant.
HOW many babies are IN there?
It seems difficult even to walk.
After seventy days of pregnancy she is back to normal...
but we still have a long wait to see the babies:
They remain hidden underground in safety for three more weeks.
"Where are they?
Bring them out pleeeease?"
There they are. Seven!
No wonder Bubbles was so fat.
"Can I have some milk?"
It's a big confusing world out there.
"Come out and play.
Mommy is keeping watch!"
