[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The meerkat or suricate, Suricata suricatta, is a small mammal belonging to the mongoose family. Meerkats live in all parts of the Kalahari Desert in Botswana, in much of the Namib Desert in Namibia and southwestern Angola, and in South Africa. A group of meerkats is called a "mob", "gang" or "clan". A meerkat clan often contains about 20 meerkats, but some super-families have 50 or more members. In captivity, meerkats have an average life span of 12–14 years, and about half this in the wild. (From Wikipedia)

Indeed this is a cute creature posing for my friend Eleu. Nice POV and sharp focus. TFS

HI Eleu, These little dudes always make me think they are in need of a big cuddle with the dark eyes and the habit of holding one foot off the ground even when on all fours.Fiona
