a small animal with a HUGE personality
Probably one of the most recognisable animals in the world and a favourite for many on television and in zoos.
These beautiful characters are always one of our most popular animals and rightly so they are inquisitive characters and they love receiving lots of love and attention.

Pretty Mika came to live with us in 2016 after she was rejected by her mum. Poor Mika was the only surviver of her siblings after her mum turned violent towards them and even though she escaped with her life she did lose her tail. This certainly doesn't stop her and she is usually the one of our meerkats that is most likely to be doing everyones favourite meerkat position standing up high on her back legs... usually on a willing shoulder. Her balance can be a little squiffy with the lack of tail but she loves to try and stand up as much as possible and pose for pics.
