Meerkats have the unique ability to close their ears to keep dirt out while they burrow into the ground.
Meerkats have outstanding vision and a dark band around their eyes, which acts as sunglasses, reducing any glare from the sun.
The patch of dark skin on a meerkat’s stomach acts as sort of a solar panel during the winter months to provide warmth on cool days.
