Back to the ZooOne bit of brilliance at the Cologne Zoo is the placement of the meerkats so close to the entrance. It is impossible not to be utterly charmed by these creatures, especially with them prepetually in a sort of lookout mode.
OK maybe not perpetually. It is a bit difficult to parse this picture, but it features two babies fighting playfully, and leaving it to the adults to stand on guard.
