We meet the Kung Fu Mob lead by Kleintjie and team members of the long-running study referred to as the Kalahari Meerkat Project. The group is experiencing the worst drought in a decade. In order to successfully raise her pups, Squirt and Weeny, Kleintjie and her family must work hard to pull them through the difficult times. While the meerkats do all they can to feed the pups, chase off rivals and find mates, members of the Kalahari Meerkat Project undertake many experiments to demonstrate some of the meerkats natural instincts and behaviours. Tim Clutton-Brock, the founder of the project, also explains why he chose meerkats as the subjects of his study and how he and his team managed to gather information on the meerkats.
A list of the meerkats featured in the documentary:
- Kleintjie - the dominant female of the group.
- Ningaloo - the dominant male of the group.
