„Portrait of meerkat“

from the gallery of Meeli Sonn

Meerkat" is a loanword from Afrikaans. The name has a Dutch origin, Dutch meerkat refers to the monkey of the Cercopithecus genus. The word "meerkat" is Dutch for "lake cat", but although the suricata is a feliform, it is not of the cat family, and neither suricatas nor guenons are attracted to lakes. Dutch settlers attached the name to the wrong animal at the Cape.
