Vivian(VVF001) was a captive female meerkat born on November 19, 1994. She was released at the project farmhouse of the Kalahari Meerkat Project and survived alone for some time. In 1995 she was joined by three Drie Doring rovers: Keros, Arah, and VDM008. Together they formed a mob named after Vivian. The males didn't stay for long, as they left and formed the Young Ones, but VDM008 eventually returned and stayed by Vivian's side. On November 5, 1995, Vivian gave birth to Silks, Captain Joans, VVU9051, and Asphodel. Vivian and VDM008 managed to raised the pups, though VVU9051 was later predated. In March 1996, Silks left the group and joined the Elveera, leaving only four Vivian members remaining. In December 1996, Vivian finally gave birth to her second litter, but only a single female was born. The single pup died the following year. Vivian then gave birth to a new litter on March 2, 1997. The new litter included five pups: Splash, CascadeSparkle VVF006, and VVF008. That same month Vivian's daughter Asphodel gave birth to four pups: Froth, Gleam, River, and Swirl. They were Vivian's first surviving grandchildren. In May 1997, VDM008 sadly died. A Young Ones male named Stinker joined the group a month later and became Vivian's new mate. In August 1997, Vivian gave birth to Basil, Rosemary, VVM019, and VVM020. VVM019 and VVM020 died a month later. Vivian quickly got pregnant again and gave birth on February 3, 1998, to Izit and Imogen. Vivian's daughter Sparkle fell pregnant and gave birth to three pups in April 1998. Of the three born only one named Zazu survived. Following this, Vivian evicted her four eldest daughters. They all joined up with wild males and formed the Rascals. Vivian mated with a rover VYM009 and later gave birth on September 21, 1998, to Humphry and Rhian. By that time the Vivian were a fairly large group. In October 1998, an Elveera rover named Phoenix visited the group and Vivian mated with him. She gave birth to Rapunzel, Zaphod, and Yossarian on December 9, 1998. Then on February 25, 1999, Vivian gave birth to Genghis, Attila, and Alexander. Vivian evicted Cascade, Sparkle, Rosemary, and Imogen and refused to let them return. The four females joined up with Young Ones males and formed the Nemesis. Meanwhile, Vivian's breeding success continued, as she gave birth to Kamala, VVM040, Govinda, and Kamaswami on July 28, 1999. Then on October 18, 1999, she gave birth to a single pup named Yoda. In January 2000, Vivian gave birth to Hong, VVM045, and Phooey. Vivian gave birth to her last litter on March 24, to VVP047 and VVP048, however they were soon killed, probably by pregnant Rhian. On March 26, 2000, Vivian was Last Seen. It was believed that she died after becoming sick from giving birth. Vivian's daughter Rhian became the next dominant female.
