Meerkats, roughly the size of squirrels, belong to the mongoose family, renowned for their characteristic upright stance, much like the CollectA model depicts. These resourceful creatures frequently rise on their hind legs, maintaining a vigilant watch over the vast southern African plains that constitute their habitat.
Meerkats excel as adept hunters and are occasionally domesticated for pest control purposes, particularly in rodent management. The CollectA model has undergone a makeover with a fresh color scheme. The updated hues exhibit a more natural, uniform, and predominantly grayish tone, enhancing the overall realism of the model's appearance.
