[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The meerkat or suricate Suricata suricatta is a small mammal and a member of the mongoose family. It inhabits all parts of the Kalahari Desert in Botswana and South Africa. A group of meerkats is called a "mob", "gang" or "clan". A meerkat clan often contains about 20 meerkats at a time, but some superfamilies have had 50 or more. Meerkats have an average life span of 12-14 years.

I love these creatures; they remind me of marmots! Nice detail of the fur, expression, and the depth of field is beautiful. Composition and framing superb.
