Meerkat Madness

Two adorable baby meerkats were recently born at Sydney, Australia’s Taronga Zoo – the first meerkat pups to be born at the zoo in nine years!

Zanzibar and Nairobi are four weeks old, weigh just over 100 grams each and have recently started eating worms. They've also started exploring the zoo's desert-themed enclosure, which now houses five female and four male meerkats.

The pups’ keepers aren’t yet sure whether the babies are male or female – they’ll find out when they are examined by vets at eight weeks old.

Zanzibar and Nairobi's mother was brought in from another Australian zoo to breed with Taronga Zoo's resident male meerkats. Meerkats are native to the Kalahari Desert in southern Africa.

I think he's so popular because he isn't afraid to say what he thinks. He doesn't care what anyone thinks of what he says, he will just say it. Whilst this has made him increasingly popular, I don't believe it's a very good strategy logically. He doesn't know what he's talking about half the time and he'll probably forget half the things he says the next day.Most of his policies simply won't be accepted by the fellow governing body (I'm not too sure how your political system works) and I think he lacks realistic policies and strategies. He says he will do many things but gives no explanation as to how he intends to do it. He's going to stop Islamic Terrorism-how? By creating an even bigger social divide between Islam and the US? He's going to stop illegal immigration-how? By building a wall on the South border? What about the other borders? How is he going to change the current system that controls immigration? He's going to bring jobs, reduce unemployment and reduce the debt-how? Genuinely how? He may have been a successful businessman (debatable) but how is he going to improve the economy? He disproves of Obamacare, but what is he going to do to replace it?I just can't see this man in charge of a small town, let alone one of the, if not the, most powerful country in the world.Does he suck?Currently? No. Someone who's managed to gain popularity so successfully is definitely doing something right.As a president? I can only hope that it never happens. He needs to sort out his policies and he needs to reevaluate his way of thinking. I complety agree with you
