Photographer shoots wild meerkats, gets climbed on and used as lookout post instead

Tree-climbing goats, move over now. Photographer Will Burrard-Lucas was minding his own business in the Makgadikgadi Pans region of Botswana and shooting away at meerkats, when, one day, the meerkats — including a three-week-old litter of babies — decided he could be trusted and would make quite a decent vantage point.

‘These meerkats are completely wild but over time they have become habituated to humans,’ he observed in his blog. ‘Sometimes they just decide that sitting on a warm human is more comfortable than sitting on the coarse sand!’
