I just had to go to the Detroit Zoo on the grand opening of Meerkat Digs! The new exhibit is located behind the Snow Monkey’s and the Lemurs. Head between the Rhinos and the Snow Monkey’s and it will be on your right kind of in the back!

That’s odd, where are they? Is that one in the plastic tube? I do not know, they are all underground in the tubing, err tunnels. I will have to come back when it is a bit more cool at MemberFest tomorrow!
