Galagos, sometimes called 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 cute 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.

Before Kion can even explain the full situation, Laini gladly welcomes them into her home. But when the elephants enter the grove, their large size causes them to smash into the trees, knocking Laini and her galagos to the ground. Although Kion temporarily solves the problem by getting the elephants to stop, Ma Tembo realizes that they cause trouble for the galagos, forcing Kion to find them another home. Haven taken the route through Lake Kiziwa, the elephants arrive and quickly spray the blaze with water dispersed from their trunks. While Kion checks the area, a tree collapses. Zito arrives to save him from being crushed, having finally decided that you don't turn your back on family. Kion thanks the elephant, and the elephants use dirt to put out the remaining fire, saving most of Ndefu Grove. After seeing them save their home, Laini thanks Ma Tembo's herd, and asks her to live with them. After accepting their offer, Ma Tembo gazes out at her true home, and Kion promises her that they'll get her home back. Although Ma Tembo knows this, she is confident that Kilio Valley is just land, and that they already are home.

Beshte and the Beast

Meeting Beshte and Shujaa

As Beshte tests the strength of Shujaa the gorilla, they encounter a worried Laini with her galagos, who are at first startled by Shujaa's presence. They point to a serval in their tree, who Laini is certain wants to eat them. The serval explains that he was hunting a bird, but doesn't know how to get down as he is at jumping up. Beshte tasks Shujaa with assisting the serval, but is stopped before he can tear Laini's tree down completely. Beshte asks him to think first, and he obliges. He then conjures up another idea. Shujaa leans the tree to one side, allowing the serval to leave. However, while thanking Beshte, he releases the tree which catapults the galagos to another tree in Ndefu Grove. Shujaa offers to catapult them back, but Laini worriedly insists that they'll get back on their own, which causes Shujaa disappointment.
