The more of the latest litter of pups can survive to adulthood, the greater the chance the Bandeds have of remaining a force in this area. But there is a long way to go before these new pups are old enough to bolster the Bandeds' fighting force. The dry season is also here with a vengeance, making food harder to come by and increasing the competition between the various mongoose mobs that call Mweya their home. And aggression isn't just between rival mobs of mongoose now. Tensions are rising within the Banded Brothers family and infighting leads to some of the family being cast out into the wilderness!

The 'banded brothers' family of mongooses own the best territory in Uganda's Queen Elizabeth National Park, but other mongoose mobs want a piece of the action.

A new litter from three of the older females has been born and they make their first foray above ground, but not all is right in the banded mongoose's world. The oldest female, Diva, is still pregnant. It's an unusual situation, and when Diva's pups are born they will face an uphill struggle to survive. To add to the problems, the new pups need babysitting at the den. Other mongoose mobs such as the banded mongoose's arch enemies the striped mongoose are taking advantage and muscling in on the banded's prize territory.
