It’s a Boy! Disney’s Animal Kingdom Welcomes Baby Zebra

It’s a baby boy! If you were riding through Kilimanjaro Safaris at just the right time on May 17, you may have caught the beautiful birth of a sweet baby boy Zebra at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. This Hartmann’s mountain zebra foal was born on the savanna in the morning. Check out the details and cute photos below.


As shared by Disney: “Some lucky guests got to see the birth of a Hartmann’s mountain zebra foal that was born on the savanna this morning. Estimated to weigh about 65 pounds, the healthy baby boy has long legs and was standing and nuzzling with mom within minutes of birth. Mom Heidi is a parenting pro – staying close to her baby to bond and nurse.”

This sweet foal was born as part of the Species Survival Plan program. And what makes the event even more exciting is that this was the first zebra birth at Walt Disney World this year.
