Zuba is a supporting character in Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa. He is Alex's proud father, Florrie's husband, and the former Alpha Lion of the pride (being succeeded by Alex).

Biography

Zuba lost Alex when he was younger.

Years later (when Zuba finally found Alex), he gets the impression that Alex has come to take over at first, but Florrie notices that they both have the same birthmark and realizes that Alex is their son, Alakay.

Zuba is somewhat confused, as to why Alex is interested in dancing.

After many events in the movie (including Alex failing the rite of passage and shaming his family), Zuba finally accepts Alex for what he is, and even uses one of Alex's acts on him in the last scene of the movie.

Zuba has orange and beige fur and a dark brown mane. He is voiced by the late Bernie Mac in Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa. In fact, this was one of two roles dedicated to Mac's memory.
