A new study revealed that meerkats, despite being known to work well in groups, is probably the most murderous mammal in the planet.
Move over Kardashians, the badass meerkats are here. Scientists have discovered that these furry creatures from South Africa are extremely competitive when it comes to their social status within their pack that they even resort to eating other meerkats' babies to regain dominance -- say what?
It's hard to argue against being thankful for your mother. She brought you into this world, she suffered to do so, she likely raised you, and she likely sacrificed a lot to do that too. Mothers are incredible. However, when it comes to meerkat matriarchs, they may be an even more impressive cut above the rest.
Most animals will do just about anything to survive, but meerkats take it to a whole other level. These malicious desert creatures prevent their daughters from breeding and kill their own offspring in a quest for dominance, according to a new study.
