Man or look-out tower? These playful meerkats don't seem to know the difference.
Wildlife photographer Will Burrard-Lucas made some furry friends on his recent trip to the Makgadikgadi region of Botswana.
Burrard-Lucas spent six days photographing a meerkat family.
The amusing animals were not one bit bothered by the photographer's close proximity. In fact, they were rather fascinated by his camera, even using it as lookout post.
One of the curious creatures even tested his own photography skills.
Have a look at all the hilarious photos below. You can see more of Will's stunning photos in his Meerkat blog post.
