Meerkat camera had to be rubbed in poo

This may look like a meerkat on first glance but it's actually an undercover spy camera used to film meerkats in their natural habitat.

The lifelike robot was made to look and move like a meerkat but there was just one problem, to be accepted by the group he had to smell like one too.

Hear how people working on the show 'Spy in the Wild' had to use poo to help him fit in.

The first episode of Spy in the Wild is at 8pm on BBC1 on 12 January.
