Suricata suricatta
suricat su"ri*cat, suricate su"ri*cate(s[umsc]"r[i^]*k[a^]t), n. [F. surikate, from the native name in South Africa.] (Zool.) A South African mongooselike viverrine ({Suricata suricatta} or {Suricata tetradactyla}) having a lemurlike face and only four toes; called also {mierkat}, {yellow mongoose} and {zenick}. [Also spelled {surikate}.]

Note: The animal called {zenick} seems also to be related to or identical to the mierkat, but no reference can be found on the internet.
