Almost unknown to the general public, they were first introduced to television viewers in the 1980s in the documentaries Meerkats United and Meerkats Divided. The filmmakers were able to gain the meerkats' trust, resulting in some intimate footage of their daily behavior, and audiences found them cute and endearing.
Meerkats are primarily omnivorous, feeding heavily on insects, arthropods, amphibians, small birds, reptiles, and plant material in their diet.
Another popular show that features meerkats is Meerkat Manor.
