Meet the Meerkats. (Suricate)
This family lives in the Kalahari desert of South Africa.

"Bubbles" is pregnant.
Obviously !
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!"
