Poster with a photo of the Meerkat in ARTIS. Photographed by ARTIS photographer Ronald van Weeren.
Meerkats have thin legs with powerful claws that they use to dig burrows and passageways. They live on the African savannah and can withstand the heat well. They use their thinly hairy stomach in the morning to warm up in the sun. If it is too hot, they lie flat on their stomach in a cool place to cool off. Their eyes have long lashes that protect against the bright sun and the drifting desert sand.
