Sometime it is a great feeling to be alone,
Not necessary for a long time, but just enough time to feel that you miss the one you love / By the way.
Meerkats or Suricate Suricata suricatta is a small mammal belonging to the mongoose family. They are partial to dry areas and common in parts of the Kalahari Desert in Botswana, Namibia, Angola and South Africa. A group of Meerkats is called a “mob”, “gang” or “clan” and usually consist of about 20 individuals, sometimes up to 50.
Meerkat is a ‘loan’ word from the Dutch which is incorrect as Meerkat is Dutch for “Lake Cat” signifying that the Meerkat is part of the ‘cat’ family, which it is not. Meerkats live in desert areas proving that they are apt to living in dry areas so ‘Lake Cats’ is totally inappropriate.
Africa is shrouded in superstition and virtually all components of the biosphere are used, revered or worshiped for some or other reason – the Suricate being no exception. In Zambia and Zimbabwe Suricates are known as the sun angel as they protect villages from the moon devil or werewolf which is believed to attack stray cattle or lone tribesmen.
Suricates are good to sticking together, to watch over each other, the through value for survival.
