Good morning, beautiful Kalahari. It is time to wake up, and the African sun rises. The Meerkats emerge out of their den. The soft light of the sunlight creates a beautiful silhouette. This small Meerkat is standing upright between the lush green bushes, enjoying the warmth of the African sunrise. A Meerkat is always cute.
Meerkat Standing Upright
With its vibrant orange-reddish colors, the sunrise spotlight this Meerkat. It seems this animal stares into the light. The left leg is a bit lifted to get a tad higher. What can be out there? Right predators, which hunt Meerkats. In short, it is better to always have a watchful eye on the habitat and surroundings.
What’s more? Meerkats need to be careful. Their predators are such as jackals, snakes, and birds of prey like hawks or eagles. Therefore, every family has sentries. They watch over the area while the other family members forage for food and babysit the meerkat pups.
Meerkats, Suricata suricatta are listed as the least concern on the IUCN red list.
Summing up, are you looking for a specific image for your project? You can purchase a meerkat image license. I also sell high-quality fine art prints, canvas wall art, acrylic prints, and modern metal photo prints.
Beautiful, love the backlight ❤️, fabulous Anette!

I was lucky that I had just turned around when I saw this sweet little pup. Thank you, Hanneke. 😀
