The Dominant Meerkat PairEdit
When Whiskers founded the two oldest females were Holly and her litter mate Brambles. Brambles established female dominance alongside Argon who established male dominance over his litter mate brother Delpheus and wild male Beetle. After her first litter Brambles lost dominance to Holly. Holly remained dominant for the next three years until her death on September in 2000. With Holly's death Argon left the group and joined another group called PQ with his brother Delpheus. After Holly died her niece Risca established dominance in the group and Beetle took male dominance. Beetle and the majority of the males left the group on roving expeditions and 8 Vivian rovers joined the group. Vivian male Izit established dominance but was overthrown by his brothers and Zaphod took male dominance after him. Risca lost dominace to Vialli and Vialli became the next dominant female but died in January 2002 and Flower established dominance. In 2003 Zaphod lost dominance to his litter mate brother Yossarian but regained dominance in March 2004. Flower was the dominant female for six years until her death in 2007 and Rocket Dog established dominance. Zaphod remained in Whiskers for a short period before leaving it in a roving band which emmigrated into the Whiskers group splinter called Aztecs. Rocket Dog's younger half brother Machu Pichu took dominant male position. Rocket Dog was hit by a car in 2008 and Ella became the new dominant female. Machup Pichu and 4 other males emmigrated into Lazuli group and ousted a Lazuli male named Thundercat who joined Whiskers group and established male dominance.
