A spinoff of When I Were a Lad featuring sad and adorable images of meerkats as they do their best to escape grinding poverty and make a better life for themselves Already it has generated spin-offs—When I Were a School Lad and When I Were a Nipper. Here, instead of ragged trousered children scrabbling around the streets, getting put in perilous positions—the stock in trade of the previous books—the north of England is populated with a small number of meerkats. Meerkats get put to work down the mines, go to seaside for their holidays, and mess about on trams. The meerkat world and the human world easily intermingle in a reworking of many of the photos first used in When I Were a Lad.

The Colliers are a pretty normal family: mum, dad, two kids, two dogs and two cats ... Oh, and a few wallabies, two lemurs, several owls, Ringo the bad-tempered crane and two cheeky, hand-reared meerkats named Wren and Rascal. THE MEERKATS OF SUMMER FARM is the remarkable story of a year at Axe Valley Bird and Animal Park, following the birth of the adorable young kits. In her charming and often hilarious memoir, Jayne Collier describes how these two playful and ever-curious creatures became the park's star attraction and - in spite of permanent damage to her kitchen floor and occasional (subterranean) breaks for freedom - found a permanent place in the family's heart.

The life of the Meerkats - from the highly successful TV series, and soon to be released major feature film MEERKAT MANOR is the true-life story of Flower, the heroine of the successful television series, and the dominant female of Whiskers group. Through words and superb photographs, the reader becomes closely involved in the life-or-death struggles, just like a soap opera, of this curiously attractive tribe. MEERKAT MANOR not only describes what meerkats do, but explains why they do it, providing important insights into the working of other animal societies, including humans. 'They look cute and their teamwork has led some to suggest they are ideal role models for humans, but ... if MEERKAT MANOR is billed as a soap opera, it is one scripted by Quentin Tarantino' Mail on Sunday.

Meerkats seem to get everywhere these days. But what to do with all the corpses when they reach the end of their fluffy little lives? Don't just throw them away! Why not turn one upside down and use it as a penholder? Or cut it in half and use it to replace a table leg? Peppered with brilliant, mercilessly dark humour, 101 Uses for a Dead Meerkat is a handy illustrated guide to making the best with that pile of cutesy cadavers that you just don't know what to do with. It's fiendishly inventive, more than a little sick, and very funny indeed. (No meerkats were harmed in the making of this book. Unfortunately.)

"In Mad Dogs and Meerkats, Karen Brown links the increase of rabies in Southern Africa to the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Her study shows that the most afflicted regions of South Africa have seen a dangerous rise in feral dog populations as people lack the education, means, or will to care for their pets or take them to inoculation centers. Ineffective disease control, which in part depends on management policies in neighboring states, has exacerbated the problem. The book traces the history of rabies in South Africa and neighboring states from 1800 to the present and shows how environmental and economic changes brought about by European colonialism and global trade have had long-term effects"--Provided by publisher.

In recent years nobody could have failed to notice the frequent and often sensati- alist media headlines warning of the latest global disease threat to humankind. But behind all the hyperbole lie real challenges related to dealing with the increasing incidence of emerging zoonotic disease events, the majority of which are thought to originate in wildlife (Jones et al. 2008). There are also many important diseases of domestic livestock which also occur in wildlife (e. g. foot and mouth disease and classical swine fever in wild boar, bovine tuberculosis in deer, badgers or possums), some of which can have a devastating impact on the farming industry, the wider rural economy and ultimately the public purse. But we should also not forget that wildlife diseases may have serious implications for the conservation of biodiversity. For some of the rarest, most endangered species (such as the Ethiopian wolf) d- ease may pose the greatest threat to their survival. If we are to avoid or reduce these impacts then we must improve our ability to detect and manage the risks associated with disease in wildlife populations. This is a challenge that will require expertise from many different disciplines: veterinary, ecological, medical, economic, poli- cal and zoological. In such an interdisciplinary field it is difficult to stay up to date with contemporary ideas and with techniques that may be rapidly evolving.

The Dance of the Meerkats explores the relationship between a father and his son through nightly bedtime stories that reflect on the lessons and adventures of two young meerkats within their community. During these conversations the man and the boy share what they have experienced each day and the stories reinforce good behaviour in dealing with change and in being part of a community. After each part of the story the father asks the son for his opinion and here you can see what your own child thinks about the story so far, and compare that to the thoughts of the boy in the book.

From USA Today bestselling author Leslie Langtry comes a former CIA agent turned Girl Scout Troop leader, and a murder that will keep you guessing until the end! Just as Merry Wrath’s former career as a CIA agent seems to be fading into a distant memory, the agent turned Girl Scout troop leader discovers that her beloved little suburban ranch house may not be what it seems. When a masked gunman breaks in to demand the return of "Nye," she fears that she may not have been the first spy to live there. What…or who is "Nye?" And when Merry trips over the dead body of that same gunman later at the zoo, she realizes that her favorite king vulture and his mouthy scarlet macaw friend may be witnesses to a murder. Suddenly this becomes much more personal, and her list of suspects grows from a cosplaying teenaged demigod zookeeper, to a possible plot by the Russians... which may even include Merry's old arch-nemesis. Things aren’t going well for her Girl Scout troop either, as a new addition causes trouble, and the girls begin to turn against each other—sparking way more than just preteen angst. From a dangerous close encounter with a mythical red wolf, to a jovial, geriatric group of Russian expats who brew their own mind-bending vodka, Merry Wrath worries that if she doesn’t find the killer soon, this case may be her last.
