Meerkat, a small mammal. Its head and tail are 42-60 cm long. It lives in the Kalahari desert of South Africa. They are very social animals. They live in a community of up to 40. They are good at digging holes, rest at night and move during the day. They mainly eat insects, but they also eat lizards, snakes, spiders, plants, eggs and small mammals. Meerkat lives in the hottest and driest areas on earth. It is a precocious and gregarious animal. But he is fierce and powerful enough to kill a cobra.
Meerkat’s tail is long and thin, and its tip extends to the end. The end points at the end are black. When standing upright, meerkat will use its tail to maintain balance. Their face shape is also pointed and extends to the brown nose. There are black blocks around meerkat’s eyes. The function of these structures is the same as that of sunglasses, It is very helpful for meerkat to see things in the bright sun, even looking directly at the sun, because predators in the air usually fly in front of the sun to avoid being detected.
