    Too obscure.

    Congrats to lionmakerfan, and to fans of Meerkats!

     

    Bilbo:  Not obscure enough it would seem! :)

     

    I'm not sure what Meerkats could do in Minecraft.  I'm betting the developers have some ideas of their own.  However, I can't wait to see what they come up with for sounds. :3  Just listening to them on Youtube ... they are very very unique.

    They also eat insects:  Silverfish, Spiders, and Termites beware!

    Mark Abernathy  - I didn't know that. Neat!

    On the plus side, now that we know what they eat, we can focus on other great things meerkats do in this thread, and hop over to the helpful termites thread started after MINECON to dig into the details of how termites work!

    Thanks Nova!

     

    I think Meerkats also each a bunch of other things, but when I saw Insects on the wikipedia page  I thought it was a fun idea for minecraft insects to have a natural predator.  The only issue I can think of is that being in the Desert, they won't encounter Silverfish or Termites too often.

     

    (Perhaps if Meerkats spawned in both Desert and Savannah!)

    Meercats should spawn in Savannah biomes as well as desert biomes , I have seen meercats in African Savannah documentary's .

    I think they should add this to Minecraft Pe IOS.

    If you could tame meercats what would they do for you, would they only attack certain mobs or what ever you attack like dogs?

    Behavior: Stand on hind legs & bark like a dog at anything that flies.

    Food: Bugs, birds, eggs, lizards, rodents, & fruit, so from what's available, they'd eat parrots, turtle eggs, & berries. (Note that bats are not related to rodents).

    Location: Savanna.

    I think if I spotted one I’d start fangirling then tame every single one I see. They should totally add this!

    I think this would help more if you added scorpians, which they can attack naturally. I have also heard that a meerkat can outsmart a cobra.

    They also don't have many (or any) desert specific critters even though deserts are extremely common.

    That sounds great!!! [ - :

    It would add a nice addition to Minecraft, especially for the fields and plains biomes, but the one problem that mojang might face is the design and AI for this new mob.

    I think a meerkat would be really cute and live in villages

  • Avatar

    This idea is too specific and useless. What would meerkats even do? I think that it would be a much better idea to add a mob that would actually add some life to the game instead of just being cute, like birds.

    They shouldn't be tamable

    but maybe if you give it food it could lead you to a treasure or something like the dolphin but in land
