Bunga, Bunga the Wise

Wildebeests, also known as gnus, are antelopes that appear in The Lion Guard universe. They live in the Pride Lands.


Wildebeests are members of the antelope family. They have striped brown fur and two curved horns atop their heads. They also have a ridge of hair running along their back and chest.


Wildebeests live in large herds consisting of males, females and their young. They are common prey for predators such as lions and hyenas.
