Thank you for your caring decision to adopt the Slender-tailed Meerkat, a small mongoose from southern Africa.

The main predators of this small omnivorous mammal are raptors - like hawks, eagles, jackals and snakes. Perth Zoo has a breeding group of meerkats in the African Savannah where the meerkats’ typical natural behaviours can be observed.

Your symbolic adoption will provide essential support to help take care of the Slender-tailed Meerkat at Perth Zoo and protect threatened species from Australia and around the world.

Fun Fact: Meerkats make at least 10 different vocalisations. These include a threatening growl and an alarm bark. As they search for food, they utter a ‘vurruk-vurruk’ sound.

Please select your chosen adoption level to start your 12-month support of this species from the dry sandy plains of southern Africa today.

If you are buying this adoption as a gift, please enter your own name and contact details (including email address) at checkout. A link will be included in your thank you email where you can advise of your gift recipient's details.
