Dash the newest baby Zebra

Making his savanna debut meet Dash the newest baby Zebra. Unquestionably one of the cutest animals to be born at Disney’s Animal Kingdom recently. Disney Parks Blog and Dr. Mark Penning announced the foals name today in separate posts on Facebook and Instagram. You can read them below.

We had the pleasure to announce his birth back on May 17, 2021. Clearly, we are pleased to announce his name here. Without a doubt one of the most memorable trips on Kilimanjaro Safaris. With the live birth of Dash on the savanna. Indeed, it was truly a once-in-a-lifetime ride.

Fresh from his savanna debut at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, we are thrilled to reveal our newest zebra foal has been named Dash. Which couldn’t be more fitting! Keepers chose the name Dash because of the foal’s spunky spirit in addition to the dashed stripe on his left shoulder that is identical to the one on his Mom Heidi. 

Dash continues to live up to his name as he exemplifies “dashing” behavior. Moreover, now that he and Mom are back out on the savanna where he is keeping the team on their toes. All the while zooming around meeting the other zebras in the herd.

Dash is a Hartmann’s mountain zebra and the first zebra birth of the year. He was born as part of the Species Survival Plan. Overseen by a highly trained team of Disney animal care experts working in addition with the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA). These plans assure responsible breeding for endangered species. Helping create healthy and genetically diverse populations of such animals for years to come.
