Baby Meerkats play and are groomed and guarded...

Co-operative thermoregulaton in action:

This meerkat scrumming is a way for the meerkats to keep warm and is essential for thermoregulation to ensure homeostasis. 

Unlike the warmer times of the day when meerkats stretch their solar panel bellies to absorb heat, when it is colder the meerkats huddle over their sparsely haired underside to prevent heat loss.
