This hilarious video shows how simple it is to make a meerkat LAUGH – by TICKLING its tummy

Meerkat laughs when it gets tickled

The meerkat – named Alexander after the Compare The Market Russian critter – was filmed laughing with pleasure at Whitehouse Farm Centre near Morpeth, Northumberland. His keepers regularly stroke his and his fellow meerkat’s stomachs – causing them to make a giggle-like sound. Staff member Karen Lovatt said the ticklish creatures are spreading the laughter and sending visitors into stitches.
