Information


Big Springs is the hippopotamuses' home in The Lion Guard.

Description

It is a large lake with many rocks dipped into the water from the sides. The clear waters are filled to the brim with fish that will eat the dirt away from any hippo standing in the water. A large upheaval of mountainous grass is attached to the side, with additional rocks placed on top.

History

Never Judge a Hyena by Its Spots

Thurston mentions Big Springs when asking where Flat Ridge Rock is located.

The Rise of Makuu

After Beshte becomes dirty, the Lion Guard journey here to clean off. Beshte explains that the fish in his home eat the muck and dirt off the Hippos, including the food stuck in his teeth, and demonstrates this to his friends. His father, Basi, also mentions that when there are too many fish in the lake, the crocodiles come along and eat the fish, completing the Circle of Life. Bunga dives in, but the fish are repelled by his scent.

Kion asks Makuu to leave

Pua then arrives, and asks Basi if the fish are ready. Basi explains that whilst there are more than last time, there are still not enough for him and his fleet. He invites them to return next week, and Pua agrees. However, Makuu is not happy with this, and challenges him to a Mashindano. Basi explains what that is, leaving Kion worried.

After Makuu wins the Mashindano, he forces the Hippos to move out and the crocodiles move in. Kion attempts to reason with Makuu, though he initially refuses. Later, Kion returns with newfound advice from Pua and his grandfather, and warns him what he's messing with. After seeing the Roar of the Elders in action, Makuu agrees to leave, and the hippos return home. Basi invites Makuu back when the fish have repopulated.

Beshte and the Bellow Fellows

Beshte awaits The Bellow Fellows, after preparing for an audition with them. He is nervous, but Kion reminds him that they just faced the Zimwi and that even if it turned out to be fake, he still went in with the belief that it was real. This gives Beshte a confidence boost, and he steps onto a rock to perform for them. He begins bellowing and afterwards is welcomed as a new member of The Bellow Fellows, much to his delight. Together, they being bellowing as a group, and Bunga comments that Beshte was scarier than the Zimwi.
