Did you know?
Meerkats live in a dominant alpha male and female group or communities of 5 to 15. All group members have a designated role such as babysitters and sentries. They take turns or shifts performing each role.
They stand on their back legs and balance themselves with their tails, allowing them to see well.
Meerkats have long curved claws for digging, closed ears to keep out dirt when burrowing, and a specialized coat that keeps them warm when temperatures are cool and cool when temperatures are high.
