The new baby zebra born earlier this month at Disney’s Animal Kingdom now has a name! We are excited to share that her name is Asha. Asha’s name means “hope” in Sanskrit, and “life” in Swahili, and it was chosen by Walt Disney World Cast Members, who had a chance to vote on potential names.
Usually, the naming of a new baby animal is left for the Cast Members on Disney’s animal care team, but this time, all Walt Disney World Cast Members were able to be involved.
Check out cute baby Asha with her mother Heidi in the video below:
