Plus, I'm pals with every little galago. And they hanging at Ndefu. That's the style, yo.

Beshte, The Imaginary Okapi

Galagos, also known as Bushbabies, are primates that appear in The Lion Guard universe. They live in the Pride Lands.


In the Real World

Lesser galagos are small brown and grey primates with large round eyes, a long fluffy tail and large bat-like ears. They typically have a white or cream underbelly.

In The Lion Guard

Galagos are small animals with fur that is usually even or bright brown. Their undersides, paws, and most of their long, prehensile tails are a paler shade than that of their main fur color. Their eyes, rimmed in the same pale color as their undersides, are orange or red.


In the Real World

Galagos (also known as bush babies or nagapies) are small primates that live in Africa. They are nocturnal, and the live off a diet of insects, fruit, tree gums and other small animals. They communicate with each other by calls and marking their paths with urine. They have fantastic jumping skills, with the highest reported jump being 2.25 m. They live in a group, and at the end of each day use a rallying call to to gather their group members. They sleep in a nest made up of leaves, a group of branches, or a hole in a tree.

In The Lion Guard

Galagos live in Ndefu Grove.

Can't hold on!

Galagos at rest atop Fuli

Fuli rushes ahead of everyone to save them in the nick of time, just as the galago's hand slips and the whole family falls. Once the rest of the Guard arrives, Bunga removes the galagos from Fuli's back, who have taken a liking to her softness.

Galagos in a tree

Galagos appear in a tree in Ndefu Grove during the song Life in the Pride Lands. Some are clinging to the branches, while others run along them. Shortly after, a group of galagos cross the path of Beshte and Ajabu.

The Trouble With Galagos

Laini and the galagos have a major problem with a leopard named Badili who keeps moving into their tree. With the helps of the Lion Guard, the leopard is removed and they can finally return home. But not until Bunga gives them all a big hug.

Babysitter Bunga

A galago watches Bunga sing Teke Ruka Teleza. He dances a little to the beat.
