Most murderous critter

When I was in school, a zoologist promised to show us the most dangerous animal on the planet and produced a mirror. (How many of you had this one as a kid? I'm sure I'm not alone).

Well, a case could be made, but how about the animal most likely to murder its own kind? It's not man after all.

Nor is it any of the candidates you might think of. Lions? Nope. Leopards? Nope. Any primate? Nope, although several species of monkey are near the top.

Nope, the critter most likely to die at the hands, uh, paws of its own kind is:

The meerkat.

...they're still cute, but dang.
