Banded Brothers Episode 2 of 4

Wildlife series following the lives of the meerkat's bigger, more streetwise cousin, the banded mongoose.

The Banded Brothers family are on the back foot. The once mighty mongoose mob have been forced to move den after a run-in with the Stripe mob and now the Banded family look a shadow of their former selves. Diva's youngest pup struggles to survive and, for her two stronger pups - Mungo and Mara - life isn't getting any easier.

Battles with the Stripe gang are on the increase as are the resulting injuries. Choker, one of the senior males in the group, suffers the worst. An injury to his hind leg means his survival is in the balance. The Bandeds are being pushed from pillar to post but where is safe anymore?
