Saturday is PhoBlog Day! Lemurs, Hippos, Meerkats, a Moth and a Fossa…

Saturday is phoblog day.

I’m supposed to use horse photos and then sprinkle in other stuff.  Well, I’m not ‘supposed’ to because that is a rule I made up myself… but I usually put up horse photos plus a smattering of other images.

Well, today,  I have hardly any horse images and several of the other kinds of animals.

I hope you enjoy the unusual photos for this fine Saturday!

1)  A fossa!  I had never heard of this so I am posting it here.

Are meerkats as cute as they appear? I wonder. Click to enlarge

    Dawn? That hippo baby looks like a rhino baby to me. The nose looks like a horn could sprout there … not like the wider nose of the hippo – am I just imagining that?

    The meerkats have a complex social system. The group leader is a female (smart). Only she is allowed to have babies. She has a mate and he takes care of the other males, keeping them in line. If some other female does have babies, she is thrown out by the head female. The babies of the outed female often don’t survive as it takes the whole group to forgage for food. They kill snakes also. The Discovery Channel had a very good series on them a couple of years ago. We never missed it.
