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. In captivity, meerkats have an average life span of 12–14
years, and about half this in the wild. With so many siblings running around constantly there is always room for so many activities.
