As shared via Disney’s Animals, Science and Environment: “Fresh from his savanna debut at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, we are thrilled to reveal our newest zebra foal has been named Dash – which couldn’t be more fitting! The keepers chose the name Dash because of the foal’s spunky spirit and dash stripe on his left shoulder that is identical to the one on his Mom Heidi. Dash keeps the team on their toes as he is very active while dashing around meeting the other zebras in the herd.”
