Meerkat manor


Meerkats, or suricatta suricata are one of my favourite subjects.

They are a small member of the mongoose family found in the African deserts. They are highly sociable and live in extensive burrow systems. At least one member of the group acts as a sentry from a high vantage point. The black hair around their eyes enables them to scan the bright sky for predators.
