Meerkats make the best photographer’s assistants EVER.

The TV adverts would have you  believe that meerkats keep warm with a stylish combination of silk cravat and crushed-velvet dressing gown.

But in real life, the mammals can go to acrobatic extremes to escape the  cold – especially when, like these three, they are facing winter in a British zoo rather than in their native Kalahari.

The pictures show one of the intrepid creatures displaying the dexterity of a circus trapeze artist to scramble into position beneath a heat lamp. And once there, he makes himself at home, exposing his belly to its comforting rays.

Meerkats have a patch on their tummy which is only sparsely covered in hair, exposing the black skin beneath which acts like a solar panel, absorbing the heat after a cold desert night.

Simples, as Compare the Market’s elegantly dressed mascot Alexsandr Orlov would surely say.

This trio was captured in action by photographer Nick Povey on a trip to Paradise Wildlife Park at Broxbourne, Hertfordshire.
