Meerkat Gifts

The meerkat or suricate Suricata suricatta, a small mammal, is a member of the mongoose family. Meerkats live in all parts of the Kalahari Desert in Botswana and in South Africa. A group of meerkats is called a "mob", "gang" or "clan". A meerkat clan often contains about 20 meerkats, but some superfamilies have 50 or more members. Meerkats have an average life span of 12-14 years.

Meerkats become sexually mature at the age of one years old. They can have between one and five pups in a litter, with as many as four litters per year. The pups are allowed to leave the borrow at 3 weeks old. Meerkats are iteroparous, which means they can reproduce at any time of the year.
