Adult meerkats take turns acting as guard so the others can look for food without worries. The guard climbs to the highest rock, termite mound, or bush he or she can find, stands upright and announces the beginning of guard duty with a specialized call. A low, constant peeping, known as the watchman’s song, is made when all is well. If a predator is spotted, the guard alerts the others with a bark or whistle.
