The Gattaca Meerkat Group was a group of meerkats first seen in November 2001 founded by two Whiskers females and Vivian males. Risca and Wahine were evicted from their group and teamed with Izit a Vivian male along with two other Vivian males. Risca was older but her cousin Wahine took female dominance with Izit who was also formerly dominant in Whiskers with Risca. Wahine was predated and Risca took dominance. The group grew verly slowly with only a rare breeding high success rate. Then came the immigraion of Stinker( a Young Ones ex- dominant of Vivian) who took dominance from Izit before Izit deposed him. Izit was lost in 2006 and new Vivian rovers immigrated with Vivian male Daffyd taking short term dominance. It took Gattaca a long time to establish itself. Compare to younger groups such as Commandos(whose founding females are Risca's Gattaca daughters), Gattaca group took 5 years to have 33 pups. Risca remained the dominant female for a long time and at nearly 9 years od she was predated. There was no record of any other females assuming dominance after Risca and the remaining females dispersed and the group was lost in 2007.
The Dominant Meerkat PairEdit
When Gattaca was founded, Risca was the oldest of the two founding Whiskers females and had previously been dominant at Whiskers group. Her younger cousin Wahine took female dominance over Risca. Izit had also briefly been dominant at Whiskers and therefore lost dominance to another Vivian male but took dominance in Gattaca. After Wahine produced her first litter she was predated leaving Risca as the dominant female. Just after New Years a Young Ones rover named Stinker(ex-dominant of Vivian group) joined Gattaca group and seized dominance from his son Izit. Stinker held dominance until Izit deposed him and took back the position of dominant male. Stinker left the group at regular intervals and Izit was predated/last seen in 2006. Some Vivian males immigrated and Daffyd became the dominant male at Risca's side. Daffyd was last seen just before the group was lost and almost nine year old Risca was predated, and with that came the end of the group.
