The Taurus was a group very large wild group that was found in 1996. For the first year most of the meerkats were very wild and little research could be done. By the end of the year the Taurus mob fell drasticly in numbers to just adult three males. Three evicted Nutty females joined the group and revived the Taurus.
The original dominant pair were unknown however it is assumed they were lost before the end of the year. Robert Lewis The Great was the oldest of the males and establisted dominance. When the three Nutty females joined the group VNF004 became the dominant female.
