The Mighty Masked Meerkat..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 super-families have 50 or more members. Meerkats have an average life span of 12-14 years...Photographer: Paul w Sharpe aka Wizard of Wonders&trade;."Wizard of Wonders&trade; All Rights Reserved copyright 2010"
