Zotz(VAZM012) was born in the Aztecs on May 30, 2001. His mother was the dominant female Gaia and his father was a rover named Ghost. Zotz was born in a litter of three with two sisters named Angie(VAZF011) and Flutter(VAZF013). The three pups survived their first few weeks and started foraging with the adults. Zotz was born with a birth defect that cuased his fur to be orange instead of sandy brown like more Kalahari meerkat. This didn't seem to bother his chances at survival. When Zotz was three months old, his aunt Rhea gave birth to a litter of pups. In September sadly Angie was predated. Zotz is still alive today in the Aztecs.
