Meerkats are always standing sentry in front of their HOME

This weeks Photo Challenge is home and I immediately think of South-Africa when the word Home is mentioned!! I am currently visiting family and got to see some South African wildlife again this week. The little Meerkats are very social, living in colonies averaging 20–30 members and are always found close to their Home!!

There’s always one or more Meerkats stand sentry while others are foraging or playing, to warn them of approaching dangers.
