Meerkat family huddling together
Hut, hut, hike!
Meerkats, also called suricates, are highly social animals that enjoy playing together and grooming each other. Members of the mongoose family, they live in mobs (yes, that's what a group of meerkats is called) of 20 to 50 individuals that work together and share underground burrows to stay cool in the African heat.
The meerkats in this photo probably aren't playing football, but it sure looks like it. Or maybe that's just what's on our minds on this particular Monday. Super Bowl LIV takes place today at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida. So, follow the meerkats' lead and go play some touch football. Or just grab some snacks and find your spot on the couch. Either one's a perfectly good way to get ready for a great game.
