Baby Mandrill Born at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Filed in: Disney's Animal Kingdom

A baby mandrill, seen here with mother Scarlett, was born July 25, 2020, at Disney’s Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. Mandrills are the largest species of monkey in the world, found in African rainforests where their habitat is disappearing because of deforestation and poaching. This birth is the latest example of how Disney animal care experts work with the Association of Zoos and Aquariums on Species Survival Plans to ensure responsible breeding for endangered species.
