Growler's mother is a female warthog.
Growler's mother befriends Pumbaa and becomes determined to teach him how to be a real warthog, something her son disapproves of.
When Growler attempts to get Pumbaa killed at the Rocks, Growler's mother banishes him from the sounder.
- She is most likely the mate of the alpha, since she has the power to welcome and banish, shown when she accepts Pumbaa and casts out Growler after the latter tries to get Pumbaa killed by the chief. That being said, she could be the mate of the chief.
Growler's mother has red eyes, a black mane, and stubby tusks. Her coloration mirrors Pumbaa's.
