The Irchel Mob is a small group at the Zurich University, Switzerland formed in early 2011 by one female and three males. They are part of a research project focused on understanding meerkat communitcation and methodical capabilities. This Study is run by Marta Manser, who assisted in the research of meerkat vocalisation at the Kalahari Meerkat Project. The Irchel group's code is a little differant then those for the Kalakari meerkats. First begins with Z for Zurich and I for Irchel. In September 2012, The Irchel Mob was filmed for a German Documentary called "Vom Kuscheln, Träumen und Schmusen - Erdmännchen" about what meerkats do at night in the burrow.


Dominant Pair

Since Bela, later named Mohumagadi, was the only female, she became the dominate female without competition. The three males however, did not immediately establish dominance. They were all different ages but were closely rivaled for male dominance. Richard, renamed Kgosi, was the oldest male so he became the dominate male over time.
