"Meerkats work surprisingly well together," says museum spokeswoman Charlotte Hurley. "They live in groups of up to twenty and each play a role that benefits the entire group. Whether gathering food, keeping a look out for predators, or taking care of the babies, they work as a team."
See the clan in action in this family documentary, which opens today in the museum's Phipps IMAX Theater, 2001 Colorado Boulevard. For show times and tickets, $6 to $10 (museum package deals are also available), visit dmns.org/imax.
