The den first appears when Thumper wakes up Friend Owl telling him the new prince is born. When all the animals enter in excitement they all say congratulations, and his mother thanks them. Then, all the animals leave in peace and quiet but Thumper stays to ask what his name is. She replies, "I think I'll call him Bambi". She continues to nuzzle him as the Great Prince watches from a ledge close by. A couple of weeks later, Bambi experiences his first thunderstorm in this den while "Little April Shower" plays in the background. The next time the den appears is during the winter when Bambi and his mother are very hungry since food is very scarce at this time. This is the last time Bambi's mother is in the den. One day, Bambi and his mother are out on the meadow and Man is closing in on them. As they run at a rapid speed, a loud bang is heard throughout the forest. Bambi makes it safely back to the den but he won't return for a long time. Years later, Bambi returns with Faline as adults. Later in the movie, Faline gives birth to two twin fawns named Geno and Gurri.
