- The meerkat is a curious, clever and social little creature. Just like me.
- The meerkat, also known as a suricate, is a mammal and part of the mongoose family.
- You will find the meerkat in dry places such as the Kalahari, in Southern Africa.
- A family of meerkats can be called a mob, clan or gang.
- A family usually consist of about 20 meerkats but can get as large as 50.
- The clan sleeps in burrows that can be 5 m deep.
- Meerkats have excellent eyesight and can spot predators in the air from as far as 300 meters.
