Meerkat Prints

Young meerkat name: pup

A group of meerkats is called: clan, gang, mob

Meerkat class: Mammal

The meerkat or suricate Suricata suricatta is a small mammal and a member of the mongoose family. It inhabits all parts of the Kalahari Desert in Botswana and South Africa. A group of meerkats is called a mob, gang, or clan. A meerkat clan often contains about 20 meerkats at a time, but some superfamilies have had 50 or more. Meerkats have an average life span of 12-14 years.

Meerkat is a loanword from Afrikaans. The name has a Dutch origin but by misidentification. Dutch meerkat refers to the guenon

a monkey of the Cercopithecus genus. The word meerkat is Dutch for lake cat

but the suricata is not in the cat family

and neither suricatas nor guenons are attracted to lakes; the word possibly started as a Dutch adaptation of a derivative of Sanskrit markaa = monkey

perhaps in Africa via an Indian sailor onboard a Dutch East India Company ship. The traders of the Dutch East India Company were likely familiar with monkeys

but the Dutch settlers attached the name to the wrong animal at the Cape. The suricata is called stokstaartje = little stick-tail in Dutch. The scientific name suricate comes from the Swahili language and it means rock-cat.
