The meerkat is an adoptable animal in Zoo Tycoon 2: African Adventure and Zoo Tycoon (Xbox). It lives in the scrubbiome, though it can be placed in the savannah biome. The meerkat eats insects and meat. Male meerkats will often kill each other. Sometimes they will not drink water unless you pick them up and place them in a river/pond, and sometimes they will not drink at all. Meerkats are available at 3.5 stars.
