I give you Humphrey! Last week Disney gave the giraffe his name after he stepped onto Animal Kingdom’s savanna for the first time.
Humphrey was born in June and spent most of last month backstage to bond with his mom Lily.
Guests to Animal Kingdom over the next couple of weeks will definitely want to see if you can catch a glimpse of this new arrival. So how can you tell if it’s Humphrey? Animal Care experts have given us a few clues!
Humphry has butterfly-shaped marking over his right shoulder and heart-shaped markings on his coat.
When Humphrey was born he weighed 183 pounds and came in at 6 freet tall. His birth also marked a momentous occassion for Animal Kingdom where he had the distinction of being the third giraffe born at Animal Kingdom over the past year!
Did you know? Disney is home to two different types of giraffes. There are Masai giraffe found in the park’s Kilimanjaro Safaris as well as reticulated giraffes over at Animal Kingdom Lodge. Over at Animal Kingdom Lodge you’ll find reticulated giraffe, hybrid giraffe and Masai giraffe.
