Zak is a zebra with red eyes, black-rimmed ears, and a gray snout.
Even though Zak is only present in two pages of the story, it could be said that he is reasonable and helpful from his words and actions.
Zak aids Timon in his quest to find Simba and Pumbaa, figuring that since they are both heading in the same direction, they'd reach their destinations faster together. The two are partners for a day until Zak and Timon find Simba. Just as the zebra is about to run off, Timon reveals Simba as a friend. The two part ways.
