Tumbaa is a barf skag found in the Wildlife Exploitation Preserve, usually alongside the stalker Pimon.

They have been spotted spawning in different areas of the Preserve, but typically near the entrance of the Natural Selection Annex building on the east side of the Preserve.



  • Killing both Pimon and Tumbaa within ten seconds of each other completes the Ride Together, Die Together challenge worth +10 Badass Rank.
  • Tumbaa was previously bugged, and would spawn rarely after completing Doctor's Orders. Tumbaa would occasionally appear alone amongst the regular enemies, without Pimon anywhere in the level. After the Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode Update, both Tumbaa and Pimon spawn together more regularly, but this is still not guaranteed.
  • Tumbaa has an increased chance to drop the Deliverance.


  • The names Pimon and Tumbaa are derived from the characters Pumbaa and Timon from the movie The Lion King.
