A DVD of the documentary was released 10 years later (2007) by Discovery Channel and Green Umbrella Entertainment, titled Wild Discovery Meerkats. The DVD cover is really slim. There are no special features. It is also narrated by an unidentified male, rather than Linda Hunt.
CharactersThe meerkats featured in this documentary are:
Digger / Little Boy - A meerkat who just loves to dig, he's the main character of the story.
Ginger - Digger's more adventurous older sister. Her curiosity gets her into serious trouble.
Grace -Digger's litter sister, she struggles to find decent meals.
Mother - Digger's mum, she mates with Father and has one litter.
Father - Digger's dad, he's not mentioned very often in the documentary.
The Pups - Parented by Mother and Father, these 4 pups were unamed.Scarface - A dominant male of a rival group, his right eye is badly scarred.
Scarface's Daughter - She is unamed, she becomes Digger's mate.
Scarface's Mate - Mentioned once and was unamed.
Meerkats Unmasked?In an documentary called Meerkats Unmasked, there was a dominant male meerkat called Digger. He had a mate, Momma, and a family. Aside from the age accuracy, (This Digger was 3 years old) there's no proof that it is the same meerkat from A Kalahari Saga, most likey it was a different meerkat since Digger is a common name for a meerkat.
