I support this because: meerkat is a distinctly African creature. But none of the other animals in featured in the game hail from distinctly African lineages (and before you say lion, there is a historical reason why they feature so heavily in medieval literature--lions existed in Europe and Asia Minor until very recent history) (or at least not of the obvious ones... no zebra, rhino, hippo, giraffe, etc.).
Now, I realize the menagerie of planet Earth is not precisely the menagerie of Rhia. Buuuut... meerkat seems sort of needlessly out of place to me. Maybe it's just me, but every time I see it on the weretable, I just find it... odd. (And not odd for the right reasons.)
Besides. Honey badger. Were ability: furiously dig for grubs. That last bit is a joke, but the rest is for real.
