6 days ago in "Kilimanjaro Safaris"

Disney’s Animal Kingdom has welcomed a baby mandrill, born on August 8 at the park.

Mandrills are the largest and one of the most colorful species of monkey, and can be found on the Kilimanjaro Safaris attraction. The birth is the result of a match made through the Species Survival Plan (SSP) by Disney Animal Operations manager Rebecca Phillips, who serves as the SSP coordinator for mandrills and consults on mandrill breeding for zoos around the world.

Look out for the infant Mandrill (the gender and birth weight are still unknown) and its mom on your next ride on Kilimanjaro Safaris.
