Baby Masai Giraffe Born at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park

Disney’s Animal Kingdom is thrilled to share news that in the wee hours of Tuesday, September 22, a baby female Masai giraffe was born backstage at the park. Weighing in at 156 pounds, she is healthy, actively nursing and was strong and feisty during her neonatal exam.


The baby girl, yet-to-be-named, is already showing she has a close bond with her mom Mara. The pair will continue to stay backstage until baby meets all her developmental milestones. She is expected to join the herd on the savanna in the coming weeks.

This birth marks the second successful pairing of Mara and the calf’s dad George through the Species Survival Plan (SSP), which ensures the responsible breeding of endangered species.
