The Lion King: Six New Adventures

Vulture Shock

When Kopa, the son of Simba, is looking for his father, Boga is seen resting beneath a clump of acacia trees with the rest of his/her pride. Leo asks the other lions if they have ever heard the story of how his great-grandfather chased a herd of elephants, and Boga groans, replying, "About a hundred times!" S/he later laughs alongside the other pride members at Kopa's misinterpretation of family trees.

Trivia

  • Boga's name means "pumpkin" in Swahili.[1]
  • Though Boga is pictured, it is unknown whether s/he is the cub behind the tree, the cub laughing on their back, or the lioness resting in the grass. All other members (save Babu and Sabini) are accounted for in the narrative.[2]
