    DSCF1513x.JPGDSCF1515x.JPGDSCF1509x.JPGDSCF1510x.JPG G'day All,
    on TV here, we have an Ad for something called "Compare the Meerkat" and it is performed by caricature Meerkats. Vivienne, my mate Phil's wife is absolutely besotted by the characters so I carved her a small model of her favourite meerkat, Mr. Allexandr, which probably is not the smartest thing I've done as according to Phil, "She carries that "b@#$% Ferret (his word) every where she goes. Anyway, for what it's worth, here is Mr. Alexandr, he is 4 3/4 inches high...

    Regards
    John

    Nifty carving, I've never seen a Meekrat before...here in the states. Looks like a happy fellow.

      Ha! That's neat, Bill, both the carving and Phil's comment! Meerkats are really cute creatures, and you captured the essence of them quite nicely.

                  Honolulu_Zoo_Honolulu_Hawaii_06.jpgMeerkat with an attitude.....we do not have meerkats but mongoose same family.....cuteness is when the mommy is running across the road and all the babies in a single line behind her....they have long tails so it is very funny. Mongoose always puck a chicken to grocery standards before eating. I have meerkat statues in my yard, you did a great job...sure she will enjoy.

                    Back a couple of years or so there was a special series on our the Animal channel about the Meerkats. They're quite intelligent. In fact, they have a family of Meerkats at the Lowry Park Zoo in Tampa across the bay. You've done them service John. Nice carving. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Q66...shsQl-rUhJpKIO
