Feeding on insects and other invertebrates they stay busy hunting on group excursions around their territories. Some stand watch for predators such as jackal and birds of prey, whilst the troop is feeding or on the move. Another danger for suricates is snakes, but the mob can gang up on a snake and scare it away.  the snake into moving off. 

Botswana is easily the best place to see suricates and there is a lodge with resident researchers who study them full time. This makes for especially dramatic interaction with this special creature. Can you get close enough for a selfie?
