Galagos (also known as Bushbabies) are creatures that appear in the Lion King universe.


In the Real World


A lesser bushbaby

Galagos are small nocturnal primates native to continental Africa. They have large eyes and ears that provide good night vision and an acute sense of hearing. They also have comb-like incisors and claws on the second toe of their hind feet, which they use for grooming purposes.

Bushbabies are known for their loud calls, which by some accounts sound similar to the cries of an infant, as well as remarkable jumping abilities. Equipped with powerful hind limbs, they are able to make long leaps across trees. Their leg muscles make up 25% of their total body mass. They have long tails exceeding the length of their body that also provide balance when climbing or jumping.

Their diet consists of mostly insects, smaller animals, fruit and tree gums.

Several galagos are seen during "Bird of a Thousand Voices" as Tama mimics their calls.

Galagos are briefly shown and mentioned when Beshte sings "Life in the Pride Lands".

In The Trouble With Galagos

A galago named Laini along with her group are scared away from their tree by Badili the leopard. They consult the Lion Guard and seek shelter at Hakuna Matata Falls, until being frightened by Pumbaa's flatulence. The galagos decide to stay with the Guard, still being terrified by Badili despite his friendly nature. Once the Guard helps Badili fight off a rival leopard Mapigano from his territory, the galagos are returned to their home.
