Meerkat Manor: Flower of the Kalahari Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Written by the Cambridge professor who made them stars, Meerkat Manor is an exclusive, detailed look inside the lives of the Whiskers, the meerkat clan featured on the hit Animal Planet show.

Behind-the-scenes detail provided by expert author Tim Clutton-Brock sheds light on Flower's early years, her fight to rule the Whiskers, and her struggle to stay on top. With beautiful illustrations and a meerkat's-eye view of life in the Kalahari, Meerkat Manor also contains an easy-to-understand introduction to animal societies, meerkats, their predators and prey.

Like humans, meerkats can be cute, cuddly, affectionate, fearless, and amazingly unselfish; also like us, they can become vicious, vindictive, and even murderous within a split second. By explaining the lives of the Whiskers, Clutton-Brock shares his perspective on how the lives of all animals (including humans) are structured by the need both to compete and to cooperate.

Synopsis:

With full-color illustrations and intriguing new details, this intimate look at the stars of the blockbuster Animal Planet show "Meerkat Manor" is written by the scientist who has lived with and researched them for nearly 15 years.
