Fun Facts – Meerkats

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

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

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

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

The meerkat uses its tail for balance.
