Photographer Captures A Shy-At-First Baby Meerkat And Its Family In Adorable Pics

If you’re not familiar with what a meerkat is, it’s one of those adorable mongoose-like animals recognized for hilariously standing on their hind legs to look around. And if you think adult meerkats are adorable, just wait until you see a baby one.

Recently, Japanese photographer mamekoro51 visited the Inokashira Natural Cultural Park in Musashino City, Tokyo, and came across an absolutely heart-melting sight – a tiny baby meerkat shyly peeking from around a corner. The photographer took many pictures of the cute baby animal and they instantly went viral on Twitter – check them out in the gallery below!
