Nutmeg spent a few months backstage bonding with mom before making her first on-stage appearance to Guests. Her keepers left lots of enrichment items for her to find, and she has quickly made herself at home in The Oasis.

Like many of the animals in Disney’s care, Nutmeg’s birth was recommended per the Association of Zoos and Aquariums’ Species Survival Plan. Babirusa pigs are a vulnerable species threatened by habitat destruction, making her birth a great contribution to their conservation. You can learn more about the “matchmaking” process for babirusa pigs on The Magic of Disney’s Animal Kingdom, now streaming on Disney+ .
