eagles and other predatory bids that will atack. Which i will also include large snakes and mammals such as Hyenas.
They are mostly protected by safety in numbers, however, sometimes an unlucky meerkat may be caught alone and snatched up by a bird of prey, like a hawk. When they are in groups, they fend off snakes (like puff adders, for instance), but sometimes, again, when alone, they are no match for a snake. The African people that live close to them do not eat them because they believe meerkats are protectives spirits against werewolves or other evil things. Because they are rarely eaten by anything, there are a lot of meerkats in the Africa.
