Claim is false. There is no meerkat in the original stock photo (via Alamy).

Original caption reveals also the location – this photo was not taken in South Africa:

Children: Nursery. Little one-yr-old, Georgina Rumph, likes to be in the swim. In fact she just loves a tub with some-water in it. However, a shower’s another thing. The silly watering can cause little Georgina get upset. This scene, was taken at Ashley Rd, Day nursery Bristol. August 1953
