Meerkats, the curious Inhabitants of the Savanna

Meerkats are inhabitants of the southern savannas. Several families live together in a large community. Young meerkats like to play and are very curious. They are very sociable animals and work together. Often stand on their rear legs and gaze alertly over the plains to watch for prey. Mothers can even nurse their young while standing.
