PHOTOS: Three Rhino Siblings Meet at Kilimanjaro Safaris for the First Time at Disney's Animal Kingdom

One of the most exciting milestones for Walt Disney World's team of animal care experts is introducing an animal to Kilimanjaro Safaris. Four-month-old Logan’s debut on the savanna this week was extra special, as it was the first time rhino siblings Ranger, Mylo, and Logan were out together, and Guests were able to see this adorable trio in action.

Ranger marked the first white rhino birth at Walt Disney World Resort in five years in October 2020, with Mylo joining the crash (herd) in September 2021. Logan, born in November 2021 and aptly named after her mom Lola and dad Dugan, is the youngest of the three southern white rhinos born at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park.

These successful rhino births are a major achievement for the park's team and the rhino population in managed care. All three rhinos will allow Disney's animal experts to learn more about this incredible species, and these learnings can be shared to benefit rhinos worldwide.

It takes a lot of teamwork to bring one rhino to the savanna – let alone three for the first time in the park’s history! As incredible as it is to see three rhino calves roaming around together, what is truly amazing is Walt Disney World's Animals, Science, and Environment team that helped make it a reality starting more than two years ago.

The coordination of the park's scientists, veterinarians, animal keepers, and so many other Cast Members was crucial to this success story.
