Lincoln Park zoo MeerkatAnother name for a Meerkat [Suricata suricatta] is “Suricat”.  Don’t be confused though, they are NOT a type of cat! They are actually small members of the mongoose family found in southern Africa, including South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Mozambique.  Favourite foods include worms, crickets, grasshoppers, fruits, and roots.  A very special treat is finding ant larvae.

Meerkats can reach 20 inches in length and weigh up to 1.5 pounds.

Did you know... 

that Meerkats are very social animals that live in groups of 10-30 members called “mobs” "packs" or “gangs”?  The female is usually the leader of the group.  Meerkats live in the southern part of Africa where they are sometimes kept as pets in order to control rats and mice.

Meerkats are very social animals.  They live in underground burrows in complex burrow systems with multiple "rooms" and entrances.  They work together as teams of hunters, guards and baby-sitters.

When foraging for food, one member of the group acts as a guard or "sentinel" and stands watching for predators.  If it senses danger, it will give a bark to warn the other meerkats.

We Are All God's
Creatures

 

 

 

 

"If all the beasts 
were gone,
 men would die from 
a great loneliness 
of spirit, 
for whatever happens 
to the beasts 
also happens to the man.  
All things are connected.  Whatever befalls 
the Earth 
befalls the sons 
of the Earth."

~ Chief Seattle 
of the Suquamish Tribe,
 letter to 
President 
Franklin Pierce ~

 

 

 

 

 

 

"Life is as dear 
to a mute creature 
as it is to man.  
Just as one wants happiness 
and fears pain, 
just as one wants 
to live 
and not die, 
so do other creatures."

~ His Holiness 
The Dalai Lama ~

 

 

 

"If you have men 
who will exclude 
any of God's creatures 
from the shelter 
of compassion and pity, 
you will have men 
who will deal likewise 
with their fellow men."

~ St. Francis of Assisi ~

 

 

 

 

"The worst sin 
towards our fellow creatures 
is not to hate them,
 but to be indifferent to them.  that's the essence 
of inhumanity."

~ George Bernard 
Shaw ~

 

 

"A bird does not sing 
because it has an answer. 
 It sings because 
it has a song."

~ Chinese Proverb ~
