Hartmann’s Zebra Foal & Angolan Black-and-White Colobus Monkey Born at Animal Kingdom

Animal Kingdom is celebrating two new animal births at the park: a Hartmann’s Zebra foal & Angolan Black-andWhite Colubus monkey.

On Jan. 21, a yet-to-be-named Hartmann’s zebra foal was born to mom Prima under the care of the West Savanna team. This moment marks a milestone for the park as it is the first time this vulnerable zebra species has been born at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

When he’s ready, he will be introduced in stages to the other zebras and then join the herd as they go out onto the savanna.

Swinging on to other baby news… a male Angolan black-and-white colobus monkey named Douglas was born on Jan. 15 to mom Zahra at Gorilla Falls Exploration Trail.

Douglas is the second of his family to be born at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. His sister Alika was born in 2018 and likes to preen him while mom looks on.
