You are a brave lion, Simba. Thank you for saving us.
―Sukari to Simba

Sukari is a female giraffe.


Simba and the Big Flood

On their way to look for Sukari, who has gone missing in the midst of a flash flood, Simba, Timon, Pumbaa and Bahati are approached by a hippo, who tells Bahati that her mother is on an island in the middle of the river. Eventually, the four find Sukari exactly where the hippo said she would be: trapped on an island. Timon, Pumbaa and Bahati panic, but Simba has an idea; he suggests that they build a raft. The friends agree and quickly go to work. Bahati locates some vines, while Timon and Pumbaa gather tree trunks. Meanwhile, Simba keeps an eye on the steadily rising river. Working together, the four animals manage to tie the raft together, and they push it into the water. Simba and Bahati climb on, and the raft bounces, slowly but surely, towards the disappearing island.

Once they are close, Simba grabs the end of a vine that is attached to the raft in his teeth, and jumps onto the island. Then, he and Sukari pull the raft closer to the edge of the island. Soon, all three animals are on the raft, and it lands safely on the opposite shore.

Presently, however, Sukari enters labor. Timon suggests that she have her baby in a nearby cave, and Sukari accepts and enters the cave. Time passes, during which the rain slows and other animals join Simba, Timon, Pumbaa and Bahati in waiting for the birth of Sukari's baby. Presently, the animals around the cave cheer for joy, and Bahati and her friends rush inside. They find Sukari with a newborn male giraffe, whom Bahati is overjoyed to see. Sukari then thanks Simba for saving her and her son.

Presently, Simba, Timon, Pumbaa and Bahati leave so as to let Sukari and her son rest.

Physical appearance

Sukari is a giraffe of considerable size, being more than twice the size of her daughter, Bahati. She has a golden coat smattered with brown spots, a dark muzzle, and two horns protruding from the top of her head, as well as a brown mane that cascades down her neck. Before she gives birth, Sukari's belly is swollen from being with child.

Personality and traits

Sukari's personality is unexplored, but she appears to be a kind and caring mother, as seen when she nuzzles Bahati after they are reunited, and bathes her son after his birth. She is also resourceful and quick to act, shown when she saves Simba from falling into the river, and helps to draw the raft closer to the island without being prompted.
