    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!)

    Um this is off topic but I think you add dimension rifts that crack open into the over world spilling out monsters for you to fight 😆😆😆😆😆

    Would be nice also adding scorpions to desert, and meerkats are maybe the only mob that can kill scorpion without being stung or damaged

    I like the idea and have some suggestions 

    Meerkats can climb tree so if you're chasing one it makes it a bit harder as it can climb.

    Also they eat eggs so if spawned near turtle eggs they could destroy them.
