Baby Giraffe Aella

Baby Giraffe Aella (pronounced eye-la) the two-month-old Masai giraffe is one of the newest additions to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park. Born on June 29 at more than five-feet-tall she has been spending precious moments bonding and nursing with her mom Lily in a backstage habitat. About a week and a half ago she joined her mom Lily on the Kilimanjaro Safaris savanna.

Aella’s parents, Lily and George, were chosen to breed through the Species Survival Plan (SSP), which is overseen by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums and ensures responsible breeding of threatened and endangered species.

Kelly Waldo, a Wild Africa Trek excursion guide was there the first-day Baby Giraffe Aella started exploring the savanna, and it was a moment she will never forget. Check out the video of the encounter below:

So make sure you keep your eyes peeled on your next Kilimanjaro Safari tour to see if you can spot her too!
