Zarah lived near a large mountain with her family and was separated from her herd by an unknown factor. She was too fearful to try and return, because the way back was overrun with hyenas.
While playing in the mud, Simba and Nala run into a hysterical Zarah, who has been separated from her family. They help her return to her herd by covering themselves in mud and sneaking past the hyenas, Shenzi and Banzai. The two predators hesitate to attack because they can't identify the animals walking past. Thus, Zarah is reunited with her mother and herd.
Zarah is a female zebra with red eyes.
Being only a young colt, Zarah is very fearful and willing to accept help of any kind.
