Nala as a cub

Nala as a cub.

When Nala was a young cub, she had the atypical features of one. Her features were less developed however. When she made the transition into an adult lioness, Nala gains a darker shade of brown fur and develops many similarities to her mother, Sarafina.


When Nala was a cub, her personality differed markedly from her older self. When she was a child, Nala had a playful and carefree nature, which made her then friendship with Simba easy. However, when Scar took over Pride Rock, she abandons these characteristics in order to protect their ailing way of life. Nala also has a very kindhearted personality, which is explored more in the sequel. Nala is kindhearted primarily when she sees the good side of Kovu and ultimately convinces Simba to test his siding.
