Meerkats and Network Organization

Many people have seen squirrels on their hind legs, a trait they have in common with prairie dogs and other rodents. Meerkats are not rodents, but they have this hind leg posture. It is useful to watch for danger and sound a warning like a good sentinel should. Meerkats did social networking before it was cool. Deal with it.

Their society includes the boss lady and her main man, then everyone else is subordinate. Meerkats also have members of their society that act as guardians, mentors of the young, and more. Interestingly, if raised in captivity, those learned traits are lost. Creationists believe that the abilities to learn and teach are part of what was "frontloaded" when they were created. (Incidentally, there is no sign of evolution in the fossil record, even after 2-1/2 million Darwin years.) Evolutionists cannot give a plausible explanation about their learning and teaching abilities.
Meerkats display a spectacularly complex society, typically seen only in insect colonies. Their complex behavior could come from only one source. On day six the Creator gave each kind of land animal unique tools to meet its needs (Genesis 1:24–25). The ancestors of meerkats did not need certain tasks before the Fall, such as hunting, but already had the basics for dividing tasks and developing new roles. Today, their social talents have blossomed in southern Africa.
