Animal Kingdom Welcomes New Baby Zebra
Disney Parks Blog has shared the news of the birth of a new baby Zebra at Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park. The healthy baby boy weighs around 65 pounds and can be seen with his mum, Heidi, on Kilimanjaro Safaris starting today.
Today’s joyful arrival marks the first zebra birth at Walt Disney World this year. The resort is home to three distinct types of zebra: Hartmann’s mountain zebra, Grevy’s zebra and plains zebra. Though zebra may all be defined by their stripes, there are distinct stripe patterns that define each type. Hartmann’s mountain and Grevy’s zebras have stripes that stop right at the edge of their bellies, while stripes on common zebras wrap around the whole body. You can tell a Grevy’s zebra from a Hartmann’s mountain zebra by looking at their ears. They are larger on the Grevy’s zebra. Hartmann’s mountain zebras are found in sub-Saharan Africa and are a vulnerable species due to habitat loss and hunting.
