Welcome to the
GET QURIOUS CLUB
Meet Manu, the Meerkat!
Hi! I’m Manu, one of your friends in the GET QURIOUS world. Want to know more about me and my meerkat family?
I have an enthusiastic sister Emma, and an adventurous younger brother, Leo. We live with our parents, and a group of relatives which we call our clan. Our homes are underground, but we love to come out to enjoy the sunshine and play. Our clan also works as a team to help each other find food, and watch for other animals that may be looking for dinner.
Do You Want to Know More About Meerkats?
Meerkats like to play, hunt for food, and even sleep together with their family members. They also like to talk to each other. They don’t use words, but they make many different sounds – from purring to shrill noises – to alert their clan when they are in danger. Meerkats enjoy their underground homes because the tunnels are safe from their enemies, and they are also nice and cool when it is hot outside. Plus, meerkats build many tunnels to visit their family and friends without needing to go above ground!
We Like to Explore & Play!
Do you want to play with us? Print out this Meerkat Tunnel Game, and see if you can draw a line from Manu through the tunnels to his favorite food – a Beetle. Then, draw another line from Emma to a Caterpillar, and a third line from Leo to a Scorpion. You can also color the game – or draw and color any picture – and have an adult email it: firstname.lastname@example.org, so your artwork can be displayed on this webpage or on our social media pages!
