Meerkats can mainly be found in the Kalahari and Namib Deserts
(with the dark patches around their eyes protecting them from the
glare of the desert sun) as well as in South Africa and south-west
Angola. They grow to about
twelve inches and breed quickly having four litters of three pups
on average each year and live in groups of around twenty to fifty
"gangs" or "mobs" in large underground burrows measuring about 10
foot. They mainly eat insects but will also feed on small mammals
as well as birds and eggs. You can adopt a at the meerkat reserve park in Oudtshoorn, West Cape, South Africa, the only conservation project in the world which seeks to protect wild meerkats, using the link below.
