How do meerkats survive?
Meerkats live in large social groups or communities that are often called mobs or gangs. They highly rely on group communication to survive.
Meerkats can survive in the desert because of the food supply there. Meerkats eat bugs, like beetles, centipedes, millipedes, and other gross bugs. Also, if it gets too hot, there are trees waiting to give them shade. At night, many predators are out and it is very cold, so mmerkats huddle together in an underground burrow to keep warm.
Meerkats have black around there eyes to help them see in the harsh sunlight. The black works like sunglasses to help keep the sun out of there eyes. Meerkats also have claws to help them dig for food. Meerkats are partly immune to skorpian sting due to the fact that they eat skorpians and other insects
