Lambert, a lion cub, is mistakenly delivered in a flock of sheep by a stork. He is taken in by a ewe after none of the delivered lambs choose her to be their mother. Lambert lives his life thinking he is a sheep until he is forced to unlock his true nature to defend the flock from an attack by a hungry wolf.

However, when roused by a call for help from his mother, the only one who ever treated him kindly, he becomes a rampaging predator. But even in the midst of his roaring charge, with fangs bared and claws unsheathed, he still ends up attacking sheep-style - by ''headbutting'' the wolf.

* DisneyVillainDeath:Subverted, suprisingly enough. Lambert apparently scares the wolf off a cliff and to his doom. The narrator reveals at the end the Wolf's alive, stuck on a branch with berries for food. However...
* FateWorseThanDeath: The Wolf is a vicious predator now trapped with a tiny bit of fruit unable to move lest he die.
