Guests experiencing Kilimanjaro Safaris in Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park at Walt Disney world Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., may have a chance to see a new Hartmann’s mountain zebra foal prancing around the savanna and exploring his new residence. The precocious zebra foal, born in April, was named Dash by the Disney keepers in honor of his spunky spirit and dash stripe on his left shoulder – identical to the one on the shoulder of his mother, Heidi.

The male Hartmann’s Mountain zebra foal was born May 17, 2021, at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park. Guests riding Kilimanjaro Safaris got to see the miracle of birth and the magic of nature. The healthy foal was born on the savanna and was standing up and nuzzling with mom just moments following his birth.
