the meerkat

The Meerkat

They live on the arid plains in Africa. Most of the time they stand upright on their back legs to look out for predators. Diet: meerkats are carnivores and eat insects, larva, lizards, mice, millipedes and spiders.

Meerkats have extraordinary vision enabling them to spot a vulture at a distance where humans would only see a small dot.
