The Meerkat is a small, South African animal. It thrives in the Kalahari desert and some neighbouring countries
outside it. It lives in very large groups which dig burrows to shelter in at nightfall and to cool of in when the landscape
becomes hot. When the group is foraging for food, some of the Meerkats will take up the job of looking out for predetors by
getting on the highest ground they can, standing on their hind legs.
