    Premise: A look at the Whiskers family of meerkats in the Kalahari Desert
    Some viewers complain about the producers' refusal to intervene to save injured animals.
    Scenes of meerkats mating are often removed for the US broadcasts.
    Some of the Whiskers' rival families are composites of footage blended from multiple groups.
    The Meerkats in commercials and on the program's website are not the same animals as in the show; instead, tamer meerkats from a rescue center are filmed against a green screen.
    For the American broadcasts, some meerkats were renamed after celebrity fans of the show, including Whoopi Goldberg, Elizabeth Taylor and Denis Leary.
    It does not sugarcoat the meerkats' less savory behavior, including abandonment of the young and occasional cannibalism.
    Their innovative filming techniques have let scientists witness previously unseen aspects of meerkat life, including life in their burrows.
    It has been nominated for Emmys for editing and cinematography.
    It became Animal Planet's top-rated series.
