Fun Facts - Meerkats

A meerkat can dig through a quantity of sand equal to its own weight in just seconds.

Meerkats band together in numbers to frighten off predators many times their size.

Meerkats take turns "standing watch" for predators since they might be a tasty prey for carnivores—jackals, eagles, and falcons.

Meerkats are immune to the poison from a scorpion or a snake.

The meerkat uses its tail for balance.
