Saving the hyrax

The Lion Guard enter Ukuni Woods having heard the panicked cries of an animal in danger. Once they get close enough, Ono is disappointed to see that it is in fact a Hyrax stuck inside a thorn bush. Bunga attempts to get him out, though Fuli reminds him that he would be dragging him through the bush and hurting him in the process. Bunga suggests Kion uses the Roar, though Fuli reminds him that the hyrax will get injured in the process. Kion points out that they can just pull the thorns aside, to which Bunga gets started. As Bunga holds the thorns back, Fuli rushes in and takes him out.

The hyrax is very attached to a snake skin as pointed out by Fuli, to which Ono explains that he's doing it to mask his own scent with the snake skin, so that he can avoid being detected by other snakes. However, Ushari is right behind him, and promptly puts him in his mouth. Bunga rescues the hyrax and throws Ushari away, and Beshte dodges the throw. Hyrax hugs his savior. However, hyrax is immediately put off by Bunga's scent, and runs away screeching. Despite this, Bunga takes it as a compliment. Beshte meanwhile is covered in flowers, which have caused him to become sticky, much to Ono's worry. As Beshte mentions that he needs a bath, Ono points out that Bunga could use one too. The team leave Ukuni Woods and move on to Big Springs.

Can't Wait to be Queen

Ukuni Woods is briefly mentioned by Ono as part of his morning report. According to him, the area is all clear.

The Trouble With Galagos

When Shingo becomes trapped in a tree, the Lion Guard rush over to save him. Shingo explains that he wanted to reach the last leaves on the acacia tree, since they were so delicious, but also manages to get his tongue stuck as well. Bunga leaps onto the tree via Kion's command, and frees his tongue and his body. Shingo then wanders off to another tree nearby, sighting more leaves for him to feast upon.
