Florence "Florrie" the Lioness is Alex's mother, Zuba's wife, and the Alpha Lioness of the pride in Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa. She is a lioness who, unlike Zuba, accepts Alex for who he is.
Florrie isn't disturbed at all by the fact that Alex prefers to dance instead of fight. Due to this, she acts as the voice of reason and tries to encourage Zuba that it is better that Alex came back to them as a king, dancing or no dancing.
Florrie is never addressed by her name in the second movie. In the end credits, she is credited as "Mom." She is voiced by Sherri Shepherd.
Her name is revealed in the novelization of the film.
