Meerkats do many activities together. They clean each other with their claws and teeth. They also rest together. They pile on top of each other to sleep.

Meerkat burrows are made of deep tunnels that connect to each other. There are many entrances and exits. Meerkats move freely underground through their burrows. They move from one burrow to another without going above ground.
