Suricat (Meerkat)

On a visit to Addo Elephant Park, I took this shot of a Suricat lookout sitting on the top of a shrub.
While the rest feed, there is always one watching for danger. They are prey to the larger eagle species.

One of my favourite little animals, they always appear to have so much character. Keep well Diane

I love the meerkats. They can be so cute (just don't keep them as pets). Great picture of the lookout.
