A male Hartmann’s Mountain zebra foal was born May 17, 2021, at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista.

Guests riding Kilimanjaro Safaris got to see the miracle of birth and the magic of nature. The healthy foal was born on the savanna and was standing up and nuzzling with mom just moments following his birth.

Mother and her long-legged son are now bonding backstage and will join the herd back on the savanna in a week or two.

Congratulations mom and son, and of course, to Disney!
