Drie Doring

Keros(VDM009) was born in the Drie Doring Mob on September 4, 1994. His mother was VDF001, the dominant female, and his father was an unknown male possiblely the dominant male of the Drie Doring at the time. His litter consisted of his two brothers Arah(VDM007) and VDM008. The three brothers survived their first year within the Drie Doring. As an adult male Keros started to take to roving shortly after his first birthday. In October 1995, barely a month after his first birthday, a group of wild males joined the Drie Doring and drove out all the natal-males over a year of age. Keros left the Drie Doring for good along with his brothers Arah and VDM008. The three brothers came across a lone female named Vivian and founded the Vivian Mob. Kero's brother VDM008 became the dominant male, however Keros and Arah did not stay in the Vivian for long and soon left to go roving. The two brothers came across two Avatar females.

Young Ones

The four meerkats set the foundation or the Young Ones Mob. During the confustion of no dominant pair, Arah mated with Morgause, however Keros assumed dominance later on. Morgause won female dominance over her sister Igraine. She later gave birth to the first litter of the pups in March. The pups survived and Morgause soon became pregnant again in October. On the December 9, 1996 Morgause gave brith to Holly, Brambles, VYM009 and VYF010. Morgause soon got pregnant again and gave birth to Piglet, Roo, Pooh, Eeyore and VYM015 on February 26, 1997. Later that year in August she gave birth to Keros' third litter, which included Durnik and VYM018. The couple continued to have many litters over the years. In 1998, Kero's daughters left the group to form the famous Whiskers Mob, while Arah, Kero's brother, disappeared leaving Keros' dominanc eunchallanged. In November 1997 Morgause had Pippin, VYF020, VYF021 and Poppy. Sadly Keros died on November 26, 1997. Keros' brother Arah took dominance for arond a year after him before he was lost. His long-term partner Morgause continued to lead the group until she was Last Seen in February 2004. The Young Ones were eventually lost in January 2008, however Keros' blood-line still runs in many meerkat groups today.
