Scientific Name:
Suricata suricatta

Home: South African savanna

Description: One foot tall with tan or gray fur, dark brown bands on back with black tipped ears and tail

The Meerkat is a mongoose of the African grasslands. Like other Mongooses, Meerkats hunt with amazing agility. Delicacies such as bugs, lizards, and small rodents prove easy prey for this predator. Meerkats differ from most mongooses because they live in large social communities of more than one family. Using their sharp claws, they dig huge burrows with tunnel systems for the colony. They all watch out for each other, and are often seen on their hind feet with their noses in the air, keeping watch.

Meerkats are one of the few predators in the world to attack with absolutely no warning signs. This hunter's trademark move is the ultimate surprise sneak-attack!

Stinger-lickin'-good! Meerkats eat poisonous scorpions by quickly biting off their stingers, and then eating the rest!

When the sun rises, all the meerkats will come out of their burrow to stand up and catch some rays!

Above information is from here.


One animal I always like to spend a long time watching is Meerkat, not only they look cute, but they are fun to watch. :) The way they run, the way they look around like a spy. Just crack me up sometime. :) I like them very much, do you?
