Bees are a species of grub native to Hakuna Matata, the Pride Lands, and the Tree of Life.

Physical characteristics

Bees are small, round-bodied grubs with antennae and black-and-yellow striped bodies. They have six legs and thin gray wings.

Sociocultural characteristics

Bees tend to live and travel together in groups, and reside in hives that are typically hanging from a tree branch. They are easily angered and can deliver nasty stings that leave blisters. However, honey badgers are impervious to their attacks.

History

The Lion King 1½

When Simba and Nala have a romantic evening together, Timon and Pumbaa attempt to disrupt them by throwing a bee hive at them. However, the bees chase them instead.

"Can't Wait to be Queen"

Simba oversees the ceremonial naming of the bees during the "Duties of the King" musical sequence.

Later, Ono reports that bees are in the path of a herd of elands, and Kiara orders the Lion Guard to divert the herd. However, Kion decides to move the bees instead. This causes the bees to chase the Lion Guard, save Bunga, who begins eating the bees and their honey.

"The Lost Gorillas"

Zazu gets his beak stuck in a bee hive, and Bunga helps him out. The bees chase Zazu, and Bunga saves him again by pushing him aside and eating the bees.

"The Tree of Life"

When the Lion Guard reaches the mountain pass, Bunga climbs up the walls and tries to eat a bee hive. However, he accidentally causes a rockslide that blocks up the pass.
