A researcher weighs wild, habituated meerkats (Suricata suricatta) at their burrow. Meerkats' highly social behaviour have made them a model for studying the evolution of sociality in mammals. Capturing the weight of each individual through time is crucial for tracking growth or pregnancy. A few drops of water, a scarce resource here in the desert, are used to lure the meerkats onto the scale.

باحثٌ يقيس وزن حيوانات سرقاط برية مدجّنة في أوكارها. تُعتبر حيوانات السرقاط اجتماعيّة للغاية، ممّا جعل العلماء يدرسونها بدقة لفهم أسلوب تطوّر السلوك الاجتماعي لدى الثديات. ويعدّ قياس وزن كلّ حيوان منها بشكلٍ دوري أمراً أساسياً لتتبّع نموّها أو مراحل حملها. ويتمّ استخدام بضعة قطرات من المياه، التي تعدُّ مورداً شحيحاً للغاية في هذه المنطقة الصحراوية لاستدراج حيوانات السرقاط للوقوف على الميزان.
