Rosemary(VVF014) was born in the Vivian Mob on August 23, 1997. Her parents were Vivian and Stinker, the dominant couple. Her litter-mates were Basil (VVM015), VVM019 and VVM020. Sadly, on November pups VVM019 and VVM020 died. Rosemary and Basil survived to adulthood. She stayed in the group, taking care of the pups and taking sentry duties as a subordinate female. When she was 2 years old, Rosemary was evicted along with Imogen, Sparkle and Cascade. They soon met up and joined two Young Ones males.


They stayed together and formed the Nemesis Mob. The males were Durnik, VYM018(Durnik's litter-mate) and Morris. Male dominance was probably taken by Morris, because he was the oldest male in the mob. Female dominance may have been taken by Sparkle or Cascade who were the older and litter-mates. Not longer after the group was formed, wild males came and kicked out the Young Ones males. The Nemesis headed of the KMP(Kalahari Meerkat Project) and were no longer followed after that. Two years later, on June 27, 2001, Rosemary and Imogen were seen with two Balrog rovers. The rovers soon return to the Balrog mob, the two females tried to join the mob but were chased away and disappeared. They were last seen on first of July, 2001.
