As the season ends, the Whiskers now have 50 members. The new matriarch, Rocket Dog, attempts to maintain control of the group in spite of the efforts of her sister, Maybelline, to attain dominant female status. The group dynamic has changed and nothing will ever be the same again.
Animal Planet's series Meerkat Manor follows the Whiskers, a family of meerkats, that struggles to survive in Africa's Kalahari Desert. The series was filmed over the course of a 10-year period for a Cambridge University study.
