Animal Kingdom Welcomes New Baby Duiker Calf Penny
We’re starting off our Friday morning celebrating the latest new arrival at Disney’s Animal Kingdom! Dr. Mark took to Instagram this week to announce the arrival of a baby yellow-backed duiker calf! Everyone say hello to PENNY!
Penny was born to proud mom Pearl and her arrival is important as she is the first duiker calf to be born at Animal Kingdom in two decades. You can check out Dr. Marks’s official announcement below:

Animal Kingdom welcomed Penny in conjunction with the Association of Zoos and Aquarium Species Survival Plan which protects unique species like the yellow-backed duiker!
For those hoping to get a look at the baby calf, were told that mom and baby are bonding behind the scenes. However, according to Dr. Mark, you’ll be able to see them along the Gorilla Falls Exploration Trail later this summer.
