Further fulfilling my Lion King fantasy I wanted to find my very own Timon and Pumba. Unfortunately Timon was a meerkat which aren’t found in East Africa, but we saw mongoose, which are similar so I declared them a nice Timon stand in. I also couldn’t get a photo of them together, because they don’t actually hang out together in the wild and break into choruses of hakuna matata. I was able to photograph them both with their families though. So I present to you Timon and Pumba 10 years after the movie when bachelor life has ended and they’ve settled down and had families and gone their separate directions….
