Meerkats not only have tails, their tails are almost as long as their bodies! Meerkats use their long tails for balance: They stand on their hind legs and put their tail down on the ground, making their own tripod of sorts.

When a meerkat fights for dominance, its tail goes up--perhaps to make it look bigger and fiercer. When meerkats run, their tails go up, too--perhaps so other meerkats in the mob can see where the leader is headed.
