Meerkats are from the Western parts of South Africa. They tend to live in open areas and stand up on their back legs so that they are able to see for long distances using their amazing peripheral vision. These remarkable creatures have a special layer over their eyes and are able to close their ears while they are burrowing to stop dirt getting in. They live on a diet of insects and fruit and vegetables.
