Natural Habitat

Southern Africa where they live in arid open areas where the ground is hard.



Love to eat insects including scorpions. They will also eat meat items and fruit and vegetables


Threat Level: Least Concern

Not believed to be threatened and their population is stable in the wild

Here at the Zoo

We have mob of 8 Meerkats. They each take it in turns to be on sentry duty keeping keeping each other safe from predators.
