The meerkat or suricate, is a small mammal belonging to the mongoose family. Meerkats live in all parts of the Kalahari Desert in Botswana, in much of the Namib Desert in Namibia and southwestern Angola, and in South Africa. A group of meerkats is called a mob or a gang. A meerkat clan often contains about 20 meerkats, but some super-families have 50 or more members. In captivity, meerkats have an average life span of 12–14 years, and about half this in the wild.

According to African popular belief, the meerkat is also known as the sun angel, as it protects villages from the moon devil or the werewolf which is believed to attack stray cattle or lone tribesmen.

Meerkat Manor – Season 1

Meerkat Manor - Season 1


Meerkat Manor – Season 1
Triumph and mishap, comedy and tragedy – everything a good story needs, but this one is different, it stars a group of wild meerkats in South Africa. This ground-breaking thirteen part series records the daily lives of a group of meerkats known as “The Whiskers”. Using state of the art camera technology above and below ground, and by tracking the group’s movements 24 hours a day, the series paints a dramatic picture of a year in their highly complex and social lives. From viscous fights with rival gangs to infighting within the group, snake attacks, births of two dozen pups, and tragic deaths, Meerkat Manor includes animal behavior never recorded before. With characters that would be more at home in a real life soap opera, their entangled lives make for addictive viewing. MEERKAT MANOR is All My Children meets Wild Kingdom. The show is narrated by Sean Astin of Lord of the Rings and 24.
