Mbuni thanks Simba for saving the ostriches' eggs

When a mudslide threatens a nest of ostrich eggs, Mbuni and the other ostriches begin to panic. The Lion Guard arrives on the scene and successfully rescues the eggs, prompting thanks from Mbuni, who is honored to have been personally served by Simba, the king of the Pride Lands.

Later, a stampede of gazelles threatens the eggs once more, and the ostriches begin to run around in a panic. Fuli arrives to calm them, while Ono halts the gazelles. In this way, the eggs are saved once more.

Physical appearance

Mbuni is tall and long-legged, with black feathers and a pinkish-white neck. She has a tuft of white feathers on her head and blue eyes.

Personality and traits

Gullible and easily enchanted, Mbuni is quick to take the advice of Bunga, which lands her in trouble. She is not a very talented singer, and is prone to bouts of forgetfulness. When faced with an attack or any sort of stress, she is prone to losing her head and racing about in a panic.
