A group of one of nature’s oddest creatures are the stars of a new video on YouTube. We are referring, of course, to meerkats. Their strange reactions to a common object will leave you laughing. The video was shot by an owner and keeper of meerkats, because that's apparently a thing. She goes by the username “Mammy Meerkat.” The mob of animals seem to be completely freaked out when a wicker basket is placed in their enclosure. Check it out:

Mammy meerkat posts video about the animals to create awareness about meerkat welfare. She wrote in the description that the basket was placed there for the meerkats feast of mealworms to squirm in and out of. There’s just something about that wicker basket those meerkats just don't trust.
