How to Draw a Baby Meerkat - Step-by-Step Tutorial

Step 1: To start we'll draw an outline of the Meerkat's head. Leave a little room for the ears and mouth later!

Step 2: We'll draw the eyes now, make a circle and then draw two ovals around them. Shade in the circle and the larger oval. Draw a curved line for the mouth and that’s it for this step!

Step 3: Add the ear where we left space in step 1, and a square nose also.

Step 4: Now use two curved lines to form the Meerkat's body, but leave space for the legs.

Step 5: Draw the right two feet first and make a line for the Meerkat's belly. Add four toes to each foot as well.

Step 6: Next draw the left feet just as you drew the others in the last step and we're almost finished!

Step 7: To finish our Meerkat draw a short tail, and shade in a portion of the end. Now you're Meerkat is complete!
