Conservation Status: Least Concern
Our Marvellous mob of 6 meerkats consists of 5 males. Their names are Clive, Neo, Io, Timone and Mushu who came to us from Welsh Mountain Zoo. we also have 1 female named Mauve who came to us from Tropical World in Leeds. As the only female in the mob, Mauve is the boss as in Meerkat society females are the more dominant. In established mobs there can only be one alpha female, so Mauve’s sister ‘Monica’ lives separately with another male named ‘Andy’.
Andy was one of the Welsh Mountain Zoo boys, and Snoke came to us from Sparsholt college this year as his companion passed away which meant he was living on his own, so we took him on and integrated him in with our separate pair.
Which one is digging, which one is sunbathing, and which one is on sentry duty when you visit?
