Her litter-mates were Butch Cassidy(VWM098), Sundance (VWF099), Alonzo Mourning(VWM100) and Orinoco(VWM101). Sundance was predated as a pup by a goshawk. The four remain pups all made it to adulthood. Bananas often took care of her mothers pups and was a great babysitter. She and her sister Finn took care of Ren and Stumpy during a group split however both pups were predated. After the groups rejoined Flower died on January 25, 2007. After Flower's death, Rocket Dog took dominance. Then in March 2007 a small of meerkats splitered away from the Whiskers and never rejoined.


Since the splinter group never rejoined the Whiskers, the small group was called the Aztecs. Monkulus took female dominance after three months since she was the oldest. Bananas was the youngest adult female. Within the group were four pups and four adult females, the other members left and rejoined the Whiskers. A Young Ones male named Homestar Runner joined the group and took dominance. However Bananas' father Zaphod and brothers Logan, Ningaloo, Alonzo Mounring, Orinoco and Mitch lelf in September 2007 and join the Aztecs, kicking out Homestar Runner. Mitch dissapeared while Ningaloo rejoined the Whiskers after a group encounter. In August of 2008, Logan and her litter-mate brother Orinoco were Last Seen, but later seen in a wild group. Butch Cassidy remained in the Whiskers but died from a snake bite. Her litter-mate brother Alonzo Mourning was the last of their litter in the KMP and ecame a big rover. Monkulus later evicted Bananas, Flo and Billy from the Aztecs. All three were pregnan, however Flo aborted and Billy lost her litter.
