- Two adorable meerkats were caught on camera enjoying a cuddle in Botswana
- But they are not the only ones in the animal kingdom who enjoy a loving squeeze
- Two baby baboons and squirrels were also spotted enjoying a tight embrace
Furry friends have been caught on camera enjoying affectionate cuddles, including two adorable meerkats in Botswana.
One heart-warming photograph appears to show one meerkat flashing a toothy grin at the camera while it enjoys a hug from its loving friend.
But the cute pair from the sandy Kalahari Desert in Botswana are not the only animals who enjoy a snuggle, as another snap shows two baby baboons sharing a tight embrace in Chobe National Park, South Africa.
And friendly squirrels were also keen to show their affection for one another, as the best friends were caught taking a break from feasting on dandelions in the Czech Republic to cling on to each other in a tight embrace.
