Biography

Keeper of the Egg

By the way, her name's Asha.
Timon[src]

Timon and Pumbaa stumble upon a giant egg, rolled away from its nearby nest. Pumbaa tells an enamored Timon that he'll be the envy of every egg-eater in the jungle, which immediately makes Timon nervous. He rolls the egg up to a tree, but is startled by a baboon. Timon loses control of the egg, which rolls back down the hill and right into a spread of egg-shaped rocks.

As Timon is searching for the egg, he runs into a hungry jackal, who attempts to eat him. Timon tricks the jackal into thinking that a nearby rock is an egg, and he throws the rock into the jackal's mouth while he makes his own escape with the real egg.

Some time later, Pumbaa catches up with Timon, who has painted a face on the egg's surface and named the egg "Asha." Just as Timon admits that even after all the trouble of keeping the egg safe he doesn't want to eat it anymore, the egg begins to hatch. In a few seconds, a baby ostrich emerges just as the mother ostrich approaches. The mother ostrich thanks Timon for taking care of her baby, and she and Asha leave.
