Animal Kingdom Welcomes Baby Mandrill

In perfect time for Earth Month, Disney’s Animal Kingdom welcomed a baby mandrill to the theme park!

She was born to first-time mother, Hazel, and father, Linus. Cast Members named the baby girl, Ivy after her colorful family – Olive, Scarlett, Hazel, and Snow.


If baby Ivy’s mother looks a little familiar, it’s cause she’s the same type of monkey that Rafiki is from The Lion King!

You can get a closer look at Ivy and the rest of her family while riding Kilimanjaro Safaris at Disney’s Animal Kingdom!
