Flower the Meerkat

  • Birth 15 Mar 2000
  • Death 25 Jan 2007
  • Burial Non-Cemetery Burial, Specifically: Kalahari Desert, South Africa
  • Memorial ID 21933843

Flower spent her short life in the Kalahari Desert but gained world-wide fame on Animal Planet UK and Oxford Scientific Films' Meerkat Manor. Millions watched the diminutive matriarch each week as she led her family in search of food, defended them from rival mobs or predators, dealt with sibling rivalries and her daughters' pregnancies by Carlos, the local Lothario.
Flower is survived by her mate Zaphod, and many children including daughters Mozart and Rocket Dog and sons Mitch and Buster.
Her death was not revealed immediately but kept secret until during the third season of the show. Cambridge University scientists recovered and buried Flower's body.

Cause of Death: Cape Cobra bite while defending her pups.
