Here at MickeyBlog, we are a sucker for animal babies! That’s why we’re so excited to share the news that Phoenix a female Hartmann’s mountain zebra foal has joined the herd. She recently made her first appearance on the resort’s Sunset Savanna.
The name Phoenix has a very special meaning, it was chosen by Disney’s animal care team as a symbol of strength and renewal. Phoenix is the daughter of mom Peebles and according to Disney is very active and enjoying some bonding time with mom.
Phoenix is the second Hartmann’s foal born at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge this year! She was born as part of the Species Survival Plan Program which ensures responsible breeding and genetic diversity of thousands of animal species.
Phoenix has the proud distinction of being the fourth zebra born at Walt Disney World this year. She is the 13th to be born at Disney as part of the breeding program.
So let’s all give Phoenix a big warm Disney welcome! And be sure to be on the lookout for her during your visit to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge.
