Spring is in the air and few statues match that happy feeling better than cute animal garden sculptures. The more adorable, the better and this is why a Meerkat sculpture makes such a good match for a warm spring garden. The Meerkat is as cute as its name indicates. A bit like a small cat, this itsy bitsy mongoose lives in large colonies in arid environments of southern Africa. In the wild, the colony spends most of their time foraging for bugs and other small animals while a few other meerkats keep watch for potential predators. They do so while standing up on their hind legs and give an alarm call if they spot an eagle, leopard, python, or other possible danger. If that happens, the chirping alarms send the entire colony scampering back to their burrows.
In the backyard, adorable, realistic Meerkat statues don't have to wory about any predators but they are still shown standing on their hind legs because that makes them look incredibly adorable! For example, it's hard to find animal garden statues that are more adorable than the Meerkat Gang Sculpture and the Meerkat family. The Kalahari Meerkat Statue: Into Hole & Out of Hole makes for another very cute addition to any yard and the Meerkat Menagerie Welcome Sculpture just might be the cutest way to welcome guests to the garden.
