A new baby giraffe joins her mom on the savannah at Kilimanjaro Safari. A Masai giraffe calf was born on June 10th, 2021 at Animal Kingdom Park backstage barn. We finally got to see the new calf on the safari and learned his name in an update from Disney’s Animals, Science, and Environment. You can read the whole post below.
This morning was a special day on Kilimanjaro Safaris as our newest Masai giraffe joined his mom Lily for his very first steps on the savanna. Humphrey was born in June and has spent the last few weeks backstage bonding with mom.
He’s a playful and curious little guy, and guests on Kilimanjaro Safaris can “spot” Humphrey by his unique butterfly-like marking over his right shoulder and the heart-shaped markings dotting his coat. Join us in welcoming Humphrey to the family!
The different size and color markings on giraffes camouflage them on the savanna and distinguish the different subspecies. Masai giraffes, seen on Kilimanjaro Safaris, typically have a lacy-edged spot pattern that resembles oak leaves.
Furthermore, we have reported on the birth explosion at Disney’s Animal Kingdom recently. Including a lowland Gorilla, a new baby Hippo, and the new baby Zebra.
Explore the Harambe Wildlife Reserve, home to 34 species living in 110 acres of picturesque open plains, shady forest landscapes, and rocky wetlands.
