When it comes to Walt Disney World, Animal Kingdom is easily the wildest theme park around.
The Disney Park is home to exciting attractions, incredible live performances, and real living animals. Many of the attractions and performances include real animals, as well.
Although the theme park is home to a ton of exciting things to do, Animal Kingdom’s signature attraction is none other than Kilimanjaro Safaris.
Kilimanjaro Safaris takes Guests on an open-aired tour through the Harambe Wildlife Reserve, where Guests can see all sorts of animals up close and personally.
Beginning today, though, Guests visiting may find themselves seeing double as two Hartmann’s mountain zebra foals were recently born and are now living in the Harambe Wildlife Reserve:

The two foals, Dot and Cricket, were born to mothers Aziza and Juno, respectively.
When it comes to Hartmann’s mountain zebras, no two are exactly alike. Like fingerprints, zebra stripe patterns are wholly unique, and Cricket and Dot are no different.
Dot reportedly has a “triangle shape on the front of her shoulders,” resembling an upside-down checkmark. Cricket, on the other hand (or should we say hoof?), has a wishbone-shaped “forked stripe.”
Hartmann’s mountain zebras are currently a vulnerable species due to hunting and habitat loss in mountainous sub-Saharan Africa, where the species originates. Because of this, the births of Cricket and Dot are all a part of the Species Survival Plan managed by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums.
Cricket and Dot can be spotted in Animal Kingdom’s Kilimanjaro Safaris attraction, so keep an eye out for these adorable striped babies during your next visit!
