New Video on the Jambo Everyone YouTube Channel; The Sentinel

Meerkats are fun to watch in zoos. And one thing everyone almost immediately notices is there one of the group sitting on top of a mound looking out for potential danger. The biggest threat to these guys are raptors. The hawks and eagles that live on the African plains are a constant threat. So, the look out sits high to keep an eye out for the flying predators.

Even here in the Pangani Forest, the meerkat keeps its natural instinct alive and well, on top of its game, so to speak for danger. So while others are enjoying the day, one keeps a weary eye to the sky.
