PHOTO: Grevy’s Zebra Foals Join the Herd at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Disney’s Animal Kingdom is delighted to announce the births of two female Grevy’s zebra foals! The first foal was born April 26 to Laylee (pictured below, right), and the second was born May 1 to Zuri (pictured below, left). Currently, the foals are nursing and bonding with their moms backstage. All will join the herd on Gorilla Falls Exploration Trail overlook soon.


Originating from Africa, Grevy’s zebras are the most endangered species of zebra, with approximately 2,500 in the world.

These zebra births mark another success for Disney’s animal care experts and the Species Survival Plan, a program through the Association of Zoos and Aquariums that helps ensure a diverse, healthy population of threatened and endangered species. These zebra foals are making an important contribution toward the worldwide conservation and understanding of the Grevy’s species, which will help ensure a future generation for these endangered animals.
