Animal Planet announces death of 'Meerkat Manor' matriarch Flower

UPI News Service, 10/01/2007 

Flower, one of the furry stars of the Animal Planet documentary series "Meerkat Manor," has died after being bitten by a cobra in South Africa.

Titled "A Journey's End," Friday's episode chronicled the events leading up to Flower's demise last February in the Kalahari Desert.

Now in its third season, "Meerkat Manor" documents the frequently dramatic moments in meerkat society and is Animal Planet's No. 1 show.

"Flower's courage and strength in life was mirrored in her passing," said Senior Executive Producer Mick Kaczorowski. "Viewer and fans have become attached to Flower because she exemplified the qualities of a true hero and a veritable leader."

Flower was buried onsite by the Cambridge University scientists who preside over the Kalahari Meerkat Project, E! News has reported.

Animal Planet is planning a commemorative spot, an online tribute and a media event in New York to honor the "Meerkat Manor" matriarch.

"Queen of the Kalahari," a prequel about Flower's life prior to her television stardom, is also in the works, E! News said.
