If online dating works for humans, why not for meerkats? That’s the plan for the owners of the Twinlakes Family Theme Park in Leicestershire, England. They wanted a companion for their female meerkat Lilly, whose prospects for a male companion fell through shortly after her arrival at the park.
The owners worried that Lilly would become lonely because meerkats are social animals. So, the set up a website called Meerkat Match in hopes of finding a suitable mate for her.
The site allows meerkat owners to create a profile and upload photos of their meerkat. The park owners hope that someone who purchased a meerkat as a pet will decide its best to turn him over to the park.
