MEERKAT – The meerkat or suricate, Suricata suricatta, is a small mammal belonging to the mongoose family. They might look small and cute but Meerkats have the ability to kill a cobra. Meerkats will come together and form a mob and relentlessly attack the snake if it tries to enter their burrow. They are also immune to many venomous animals such as snakes, millipedes and even scorpions which is one of their favourite foods. I LOVE THEM.
