Longleat Meerkats Take Photos of Themselves

MeerkatsMeerkats have long been known as curious and resourceful creatures, but it now appears some have a talent for photography too.

A group of the animals - known as a mob - at Longleat Safari Park turned their paws to the hobby when a warden accidentally left a camera in their enclosure.

In the five minutes before he returned, the inquisitive mammals clambered up the tripod, explored the controls and managed to take three family photos.

While perhaps not up to standards of David Bailey, the images are a remarkable achievement for the desert-dwelling creatures, who are arguable most famous for their proclivity for infanticide.

3 more pictures after the jump.
