|The meerkat or suricate Suricata suricatta is a small mammal and a member of the mongoose family. It inhabits all parts of the Kalahari Desert in Botswana and South Africa. A group of meerkats is called a "mob", "gang", or "clan". A meerkat clan often contains around 20 meerkats at a time, but some superfamilies have had 50 or more. Meerkats have an average life span of 12-14 years.|

A very good close up of the meerkat!
So interesting the black coloration around the eyes, it seems like a mask.
Details caught on the fur are so clear, and I like also the pose.
Congratulations and thanks for post it.
My best regards,
Cute portrait of your furry friend!
DOF spot on, nice details in face and fur coat...
A well composed presentation with this nice animal!

What a cute image of this meerkat.
I realy like the DOF and POV.
The focus is very good with sharp details.
The colours are natural.
The frame is filled well.
