Longleat Meerkats take photos of themselves
Ian Turner, deputy head warden at Longleat Safari Park, left his camera in the enclosure after taking images for a new brochure. Then, one of the meerkats, called Monty, managed to operate the camera and taken pictures of his meerkat friends. Ian came back after 5 minutes and found three of "his" photographs on the camera's digital memory card.
Full Original Story
The camera was a 20-year-old Canon EOS 650 film-based SLR and therefore has no digital memory card.
Monty didn't take any photos.
Even thought the meerkats photo report is a hoax, it's still nice to look at photos of Monty playing with the old camera. Those meerkats are very cute!!
