Parmesan(VDF173) was born in February 2014 in the Drie Doring Mob. Her mother was Mist and her father was an unknown male. Her litter-mates were Stinking Bishop(VDF171), VDF172 and Red Leicester(VDF174). Parmesan's sister VDF172 disappeared in May 2014, but the rest of the litter survived to adulthood. As a subordinate Parmesan was never evicted from the group. In April 2015 Parmesan's mother and the long-term dominant female of the family, Mist, was lost. Following this Parmsean and her sister Red Leicester competed for dominance in the group. Initially Red Leicester was showing the signs of being a dominant female, but by June 2015 Parmesan had established herself as the dominant female. A Baobab male named Butch became her partner. She became pregnant for the first time in July 2015. Red Leicester was also pregnant. Both females had been competing for dominance during the month prior and probably mated with the Baobab males. Despite winning dominance, Parmesan didn't evict her pregnant sister. The two females gave birth to a mixed litter in August 2015, that consisted of VDP181, VDP182, VDP183, VDP184, VDP185, VDP186 and VDP187. Parmesan was found dead in January 2016, leaving the Drie Doring mob without a dominant female. Red Leicester eventually became the dominant female, but the group was soon lost due to disease.
