There once was a young Meerkat called Milly, who was bored as she sat on an earth mound taking her turn as lookout.
To amuse herself, Milly took a great, big breath and barked out, ‘Snake! Snake! A snake is approaching the baby meerkats’ burrow!’
All the other meerkats came running out of their own burrows to help Milly drive the snake away.
But when they arrived at the top of the mound, they found no snake. Milly laughed at the sight of their angry faces.
