Sad was it?

I watched it once and it was sad, I can't bring myself to watch it again.

This was sad..... but it worked out.

nice story, WOY. I like the meerkat commercials, but can't bring myself to watch a whole show.

Glad to hear everything worked out for the bear.

I watched some animal show on National Geographic where a lady spent a year with a young Otter. Might have been in South America. Anyway, she tracked the otter every day for years as it developed.

Then suddenly, one day it never came back. She spent weeks paddeling around the local streams and rivers calling out it's name. She never did see it again and never knew if it just reached adulthood and struck out on his own or if it gotten eaten by camen or something.

Honestly, I cried like a baby over the show. I'm a total softie for animals. So any show that has sad outcomes for animals is not a good one for me.

I do, for some reason that show is addictive or something for me. If I miss it I feel like I lost out or something, go figure. It seems to boil down to watching a mob of animals hopping around and scratch sand while eating bugs etc. but, I like their script writing and with Sean Astins narrating, he makes the presumptions and assumptions about what a MeerKat might be thinking or feeling seem real and the photography I think is good.

Meerkats are cute animals, but I don't want to follow their lives

I saw that show also. Glad to hear I wasn't the only one that had a little something in my eye at the end;) I watch Meerkat Manor also. It wasn't planned but I cam across it channel surfing one night and really enjoyed it. Pretty interesting and cute little guys/gals.
