The meerkat or suricate, Suricata suricatta, is a small mammal belonging to the mongoose family. Meerkats live in all parts of the Kalahari Desert in Botswana, in much of the Namib Desert in Namibia and southwestern Angola, and in South Africa. A group of meerkats is called a “mob”, “gang” or “clan”. A meerkat clan often contains about 20 meerkats, but some super-families have 50 or more members. Meerkats have an average life span of 12–14 years.

Meerkats make very poor pets. They bite, and the bite can become infected. They stink, and will scent-mark their owner and the house (their “territory”). Being a pack animal, they may become hysterical if kept as single pets.

    Great shot and the b and w works really well, although the description doesn’t make me want to rush out and buy one !

  • Thank you, You mean that just because they will bite you, give you an infection, stink and go mad that that would put you off? Not as simples as most people think are they?
