Baby Giraffe Born at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Disney’s latest bundle of joy recently arrived at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge! Beautiful baby Gemma arrived weighing just under 160 pounds and nearly 6 feet tall. Proud mom Rori is pictured nuzzling her sweet newborn.

Gemma isn’t the only adorable baby Disney Animal experts are caring for at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. Another giraffe named Azizi gave birth last month to a male the keepers have named Griffon.

In the past, Disney has waited several months before introducing baby giraffes on the savanna. The animal keepers want to make sure they are old enough to follow their mothers and family, so the “little” ones are kept backstage until they are old enough to feel secure. Hopefully, we will be seeing more photos soon as well as seeing these new additions roaming the savanna at Animal Kingdom later this year.
