The Meerkat

The Meerkat is a small animal belonging to the mongoose family. Meerkats live in all parts of the Kalahari and Namib Desert in Botswana, Namibia, Southwestern Angola, and South Africa. A Meerkat clan can contain around 20 or more Meerkats, with some, having up to 50 or more members. In captivity they live around 12-14 years, and around half that in the wild.

The Meerkat is diurnal weighing on average around 731 grams. They’re around 25 to 35 cm with an added 17 to 25 cm of tail length. It is primarily insectivorous, but also eats lizards, snakes, scorpions,plants, eggs, spiders, small mammals, centipedes, millipedes and more rarely small birds.

    The best thing about a meerkat is how they just all stand up abruptly like “you hear that shit?” Bring back Meerkat...
