When Simba and Nala hear the cries of somebody in distress, they look through the tall grass and find a baby elephant named Bomo, who has been separated from his mother. The cubs try using a log to push Bomo out, but Simba falls into the mud. Nala soon gets another idea. She finds a bunch of leaves and sticks it on Simba's fur. Simba questions her plan, but she explains it to him in a whisper.
Understanding, Simba runs up a hill, scaring the grazing animals. They begin run toward the tall grass. A buffalo named Kula hits the stick, freeing Bomo. Relieved to be freed, Bomo offers his saviors a ride back to Pride Rock.
Personality and traits
As is expected of a young one, Bomo is innocent and often in need of assistance. His graciousness is clear after he is rescued, as he doesn't hesitate to give his rescuers a ride home in exchange for their help.
