Meerkats scent mark each other after encountering rival Meerkats...

The Ungulungu Meerkats scent overmark each other after encountering a rival Meerkat group scent in their territory: https://youtu.be/nyotwZwxdmg

After inter group fighting or after discovering a foreign Meerkat scent in their territory, Meerkats will reaffirm their own group scent by wiping their scent glands on each other and over the foreign Meerkats smell.

Each Meerkat group has a uniquely identifiable olfactory "perfume", and any intruder Meerkats who smell differently to the group will be attacked.

MEERKATS by internationally published author Grant Mc Ilrath The Meerkat Man is the new 240 page hard cover conservation book published in 2016. This is the first conservation book ever done on meerkats and includes two of the three currently recognised sub species.

Included are three of Grant's wildlife conservation poems, with two about the world famous UNGULUNGU meerkat group and dozens of photographs. It also reveals a crash course in the complex language of meerkats including phonetic call guides for all ages to attempt to imitate - learn to understand the language of the meerkats.
