The animal care team at Walt Disney World always finds a way to make birthdays special for their many animals. Celebration is in the air at Disney’s Animal Kingdom as they honor birthday boy Henry the Hippo this week.

The hippo received a fantastic birthday treat from his caretakers. Henry the Hippo certainly loved his treat! You can see how it looked in the image below.

Wildlife conservation is important to protect the Earth’s animal population and biodiversity. The team at Disney’s Animal Kingdom make terrific efforts in taking care of their resident wildlife. 

In partnership with Disney’s Animal Nutrition Center, animal keepers made birthday “cakes” with portions of their daily diets and some extra goodies, like watermelon, to celebrate the occasion. 

Be sure to look for Henry the Hippo on your next visit to Disney’s Animal Kingdom!
