Then, on February 23, 2011, a rather large group of somewhat tame meerkats appeared at the edge of the reserve. Some of the individiduals had faint dye markers and were curious and trusting of the humans. Furthe[[File:Maybellinereturns.jpg|thumb|Maybelline's Return]]r research was done and, after three weeks of gathering ID samples, the new mob was confirmed to be the lost Rebels mob. At first, the KMT had not reconized them because the dominate female, Maybelline, was not wearing a radio collar. Maybelline or other females had managed to raise more pups and five of the six pups who dissapeared with the Rebels in December were sitll within their group. Maybelline and Bear were still the dominate couple and were both fitted with new radio collars. Male rivalry increased between Bear, Seacrest and Maybelline's oldest sons and Bear finally lost dominance. During the midst of the fighting, no male emerged as the dominate. Finally, Bear and Seacrest left the Rebels to rove. Bear and his brother would return frequently and attain a breif domiance reighn before leaving again. However, in late April, three immigrant males from a rival group joined the Rebels. They were Big Kat, who was the oldest, Michilean Man, who was the heaviest, and T, who was the youngest and missing one of his K-9 teeth. The three males attacked Bear and Seacrest and eventually ousted Seacrest. T then attacked Bear, overthrew him and ousted him. Neither of the brothers were seen again. Then the males began to fight for leadership. T eventually emerged as the dominate male and bullied Big Kat mercilessly until he left his group.

In June, Maybelline gave birth to a litter of pups, fathered by T. Then, three days later, she was snake bitten again by a puff adder and recieved a double blow to both the side of her face and her hip. Two days after [[File:MaybellineandT.jpg|thumb|Maybelline and T as the dominate couple]]Maybelline was bitten, T dissapeared while scent marking the Rebels' territory. Dispite being wounded, Maybelline called for T late after sunset but he did not return. After two days, he was not seen by Maybelline again. Three days later, two wild males named Titus and Fyllan immigrated into the group. Titus was the oldest male and established dominance over the other resident males. T eventually returned with a minor wound and was attacked by Titus and overthrown. He later left the group for a little over a week. Apun returning, he attacked Titus, whom was now wounded, and overthrew him. He maintained his status for about two weeks before Titus again overthrew him. He stayed a subordinate for five days and then attained dominance again after a hard won fight with Titus and Fyllan. T was fitted with a radio collar and he and Maybelline settled back into their routines as the dominate couple. However, T was caught by an eagle on August 12, 2011, leaving Maybelline, who was pregnant, without her mate. Titus, the former dominate male, stepped in as the new dominate male at her side. He had no challenge from the other males.
