Disney's Animal Kingdom is celebrating another birth at the park with a female baby mandrill, seen here with first-time mom Hazel.


Ivy was born April 10 2021, and with this new addition, the troop at Disney’s Animal Kingdom now includes four generations of mandrills from the same family, mirroring the social system of mandrills found in the wild.

This birth is an example of how Disney's animal care experts works with the Association of Zoos and Aquariums on Species Survival Plans.

You may be able to catch a glimpse of mom and the healthy newborn while onboard the park's Kilimanjaro Safaris attraction.

They really do get a bad rap. Good thing your name is not exactly the same as your avatar. Look up what it is meant to call someone a Bozo. It isn't a compliment.

Clowns get a bad rep because of a few bad apples (Pennywise, The Joker, Killer Clowns from Outer Space). They are usually really nice people. And you wouldn't believe the tricks they can do if they get drunk enough.

Thats great. I like how we are helping all the species. Did you no that in America there are only 80 rhinos alive. Thats just a Staggering low number. Of course that’s in zoos in America..

That's great and all, but monkeys freak me out. Ever since I saw "Monkey Shine" at a Drive-in back when I was a kid.🤡
