When Simba and Nala meet again as young adult lions, they are heard purring with each other as they rub their heads together. The genus Panthera (lions, tigers, jaguars and leopards) can roar but they are biologically unable to purr. The "small cats" (including cheetahs, mountain lions, lynx and more) can purr, but are unable to roar due to biological differences in their anatomy.
There are no opening credits.
