The Jean Mob was founded in mid 1996 by the former dominant female of the Lazuli, Lazuli and a group of wild meerkats.When the group was first seen by the researchers, it was considered as a wild group, but then one of the meerkats was identified as Lazuli, the former dominant female of the Lazuli, who was last seen a few months before after being evicted by her sister, Ziziphus, the group was renamed as Lazuli2, but then the name was changed again as Jean, because of the name of the new domiant male.
Lazuli and Jean were the dominant couple for years and managed to produce many successful litters. after Lazuli died in 2005, Jean left the group and the group started to decline in numbers because of evictions and roving, but in recent years the group has been recovering in numbers.
