Meerkats make you well-disposed towards them once you take a look at them. An interesting fact about meerkats is that African natives believe them to be sun angels who protect people from moon devils or werewolves.
The appearance of meerkats (lat. Suricata suricatta) is quite amusing. They are small and pretty slim, their body length is up to 35 cm, and their tail length is around 25 cm. These animals weigh about 600-1000 g.
Meerkats live in highly organized communities, grouping into clans of up to 30 meerkats rather than settling alone. These animals dig holes to live in.
Meerkats have one amazing ritual: after the morning shower and sunbathing they caress each other, welcoming and congratulating on the start of a new day.
Meerkats also gather in search of food. And while the group is looking for food, a watching meerkat keeps an eye on the situation and makes a sound to warn his fellows in case of danger. The most interesting thing is that meerkats have an educational system, which is scientifically proven. In other words, they have their own schools and kindergartens.
