Pudini is an ostrich who lived during the reign of Mufasa.
Pudini is first seen overhearing Cheka's plans to trick Zazu into getting in trouble with Mufasa. Though she plans to warn her own children about the dangers of lying, she is distracted by a bug and forgets to deliver the warning.
She is later seen during the army ant attack after being asked to help and warns Mufasa that moving rocks on Zulu Falls could be dangerous. Despite this, she pitches in her fair share of work and ends up saving the Pride Lands from certain doom.
Only a small glimpse of Pudini is provided, in which she is depicted as having a thin, pink neck, dark feathers tipped with white, and black eyes.
Personality and traits
Pudini is civil and virtuous as well as a loyal mother devoted to raising her children in the right way. She opposes lying and recognizes the danger in deceiving others. However, she is easily distracted and somewhat forgetful.
- It is presumed that Pudini is Mayai and Pamba's mother, for she has two unnamed children, and Mayai and Pamba are referred to as "the ostrich babies."
