Animal Kingdom Welcomes Babirusa Piglet

Disney’s Animal Kingdom is celebrating a first for the park: the birth of a babirusa piglet.

The Disney animal care team has chosen to name her Kirana, which translates to “sunbeam” in Indonesian.

Over the last 15 years, Disney animal care experts partnered with reproductive biologists and the SSP to “crack the code” on breeding a babirusa pair.

The piglet is making an important contribution toward the worldwide conservation and understanding of the species, which will help ensure a future generation for these vulnerable animals.
