    Hey everyone

    As many of you know. We have recently built our brand new meerkat enclosure. It's fantastic. Our 2 little meerkats are really loving life. Exploring and making full use of their new home. We are now seeking to add more meerkats to create a nice small mob. If you or anyone you know can help us with more meerkats then please get in touch

    I would be very careful about adding anymore meerkats to your pair. Their new home is now their territory . You may be better off just leaving them to it and over time getting them to breed and a natural mob will occur

    We may have some available but I will PM you. As Gary says it's probably best to let the pair create their own mob over time and then castrate the males when the colony is large enough.
