Science Friday – Meerkat Teaching & Learning

One of my all time favorite shows on NPR is Science Friday.  Last week they covered some new research results being reported on another one of my favorites: Meerkats (Podcast is here).  These incredible tiny animals – related to the mongoose – are super smart and have extremely interesting social behavior.  These little guys are well documented in a recent additional to Animal Planet called Meerkat Manor which follows a decade-long university study that is focused on a single family unit.
