The Sanchez Mob was formed by six meerkats who were rescued from the Black Market and released in to the Kalahari Suricata Suricatta Project in 2003. The males soon left the group to form the Pharaohs and some Navajo males joined the females.
When the group was released, Meria who was the biggest female took dominance of the group. After the males left, a group of Navajo males joined the three females. Shingas took over as the dominant male.
The Sanchez have 14 members as of October 2003.
