Caption

Meerkat. The meerkat (Suricata suricatta), also known as the suricate, is an active mongoose that lives in underground burrows. It feeds during the day, mainly on insects, while remaining close to the burrow. It often stands on its hind legs, as seen here, which permits it to survey the area around its territory for approaching predators.
