Baby Update: New Giraffe Calf At Disney’s Animal Kingdom Is A….
Disney’s Animal Kingdom has been buzzing with excitement over the last few days with a new bundle of joy! Guests on Kilimanjaro Safari got an extra special surprise on Monday when they witnessed mom giraffe Masai in active labor. Shortly after mom begin delivering, Kilimanjaro Safari closed for a while so the amazing animal care team could step in. The Walt Disney World Resort is very proud to introduce you to their new baby BOY!!
The little guy and mom are currently backstage at Disney’s Animal Kingdom where they are bonding. Baby boy is nursing well and the pair will remain off of the savanna for the next month or two for monitoring. We are already in love with this precious little one! He even has a special heart-shaped mark on his neck.
The animal care team had been conducting neonatal exams frequently. This allowed for a better gauge on the calf’s weight, height and gender. The cast and Kilimanjaro Safaris drivers will be helping choose a name for the calf so stay tuned for updates!
What should the newest member of Disney’s Animal Kingdom be named?
