Disneys Animal Kingdom Welcomes Baby Mandrill

inline imageThe newest member of the Disney Animal Kingdom mandrill family who was born on 8 Aug to mom Scarlett and dad Winston. Scarlett, Winston and their new baby are three of the mandrills that guests can view on Kilimanjaro Safaris. Mandrills are the largest species of monkey.

As far as the new baby mandrill, the gender and exact birth weight is unknown because Disney are giving Scarlett and her baby plenty of time to bond.

Mandrills are a vulnerable species found in African rainforests along the equator, where their habitat is disappearing because of deforestation and poaching.

This birth is another example of how our dedicated and highly trained team of Disney animal care experts works with the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) on Species Survival Plans (SSPs), which ensure responsible breeding of threatened and endangered species, in order to maintain a healthy and genetically diverse population of such animals for years to come.

Rebecca Phillips, Animal Operations manager at Disneys Animal Kingdom is also a Species Survival Plan (SSP) coordinator for mandrills with the AZA. In this role, she not only supports animal births like this at our park, she also spends time advising animal care teams at other zoos around the world about the species and helps them take the first steps to introduce mandrills to their zoo.

Guests may catch a glimpse of the pair on Kilimanjaro Safaris where you will likely see the baby hugging Scarletts stomach, a natural bonding behavior that as the infant grows will transition to moms back. We hope to see you out on the Safari!
