A member of the mongoose family, meerkats (Suricata suricatta) are small mammals native to south-western Africa (including the Kalahari region). They are typically insectivores, although they will also feed on small birds, lizards, and mice. Highly sociable animals, they normally live in large groups (20 to 30), lead by a dominant pair.
All the animals in this gallery are held in captivity at Marwell Zoo.
