Meerkat (Suricata suricatta).
A type of Mongoose, Meerkats live in large communal groups (consisting of more than one family). Being communal, they share many tasks, perhaps the most important being watching out for predators.
Here a lone young Meerkat does his/her stint on sentry duty.

An excellent first performance, Sheldon.
Nice composition and point of view.

In the pleasure to admire your next posts and to read your notes and critics.
Thank you for sharing so beautifull pictures and for the enjoyment which they give us.

Hello Sheldon,

I recognized your entry several times as a thumb but couldN' define what Isaw. 'Thought of Elephant noses or similar.
Now discover the Meercat. Very social animals.
Guess this one is the watch out for his family. Amazing colours, good conrast and sharpness. Welcome to TN and thanks for posting.


Lovely shot. Meercats look so cute but I believe they can bite too.I like that he is not centred so that you can see where he is gazing.Welcome to treknature.
