Slender-tailed Meerkat

Slender-tailed Meerkat

Meerkats are well-known to most people who enjoy animals because of their charismatic postures and social activities. They live in highly social groups, foraging together and dividing labor across the group, with one of the most important tasks being the lookout guard who will be vigilant to detect threats and alert the others.

Meerkats are ever-vigilant and alert, but not shy of familiar items or animals. Except on the coldest days when they choose to stay inside, these animals are very easy and enjoyable to observe in their various postures and performing their various tasks in their habitat.
