October was a very exciting month for Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, Orlando Florida. Why?? The Birth of a rare Zebra Foal that’s why! The foal is a Hartmann’s mountain zebra and was born late October. The foal can already be seen roaming the savannah resort with her proud mother.
The news of this rare foal was welcomed by all as they are an endangered kind with approximately 50 Hartmann’s mountain zebras in the U.S; this is why the Zebra has been listed as vulnerable on the IUCN red list of threatened species.
There is an estimated 8300 Hartmann’s Mountain Zebras in the wild.
The zebras can be found in far south-western Angola and western Namibia. They like to live and travel in smaller groups of 7 to 12 individuals. The team at C21 Team Feltrim can’t wait to hear the name of this beautiful rare foal!
