Magic Meerkat Moment on Planet Earth: Meerkats Cuddle with Crew
While filming a segment on meerkats, the camera crew for BBC One's Planet Earth got up close and personal with the mammals.
While shooting footage for the series Planet Earth Live, BBC cameramen had to put up with the shenanigans of the wildlife itself.
BBC One’s Planet Earth Live visits southern Africa to document a gang of meerkats. The meerkats in this area have been studied for over 30 years and are friendly to humans. While some meerkats forage for food and groom, others stand on their hind legs to look for possible nearby dangers. The meerkats are so friendly they climb on top of the cameramen for a better observation spot.
