|The Selfish Meerkat|
The Selfish Meerkat is an antagonist of sorts in the comic One Meerkat Too Many.
The Selfish Meerkat is dark brown with darker brown stripes and a patch of red hair. Unlike the other meerkats, he has freckles and whiskers.
- "...and I hate warthogs! You make noise, you make messes, and you smell awful!"
- —The Selfish Meerkat to Pumbaa
The Selfish Meerkat is hardened and anti-social, but cannot stand laziness or luxuries, choosing work over play. He is also quite fearless and certainly has a spine, for he attacks a full grown lion, a creature far larger than he.
The Selfish Meerkat appears in the oasis (presumably before Simba arrives) and starts to steal all of Timon's favorite resting spots. The two try to get him to leave by having a lion chase him out, but he is not afraid and hits the lion with fruits. They thank him and eventually run him off by their sheer laziness.
- The Selfish Meerkat is the only meerkat with whiskers.
- Real meerkats are known for their selfless service of others, making the Selfish Meerkat an ironic character of sorts.
