Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge Zebra Celebrates 1st Birthday

Disney recently shared the exciting news that a baby boy zebra was born at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Well, on the heels of that celebration, Disney is now celebrating the 1st birthday of a sweet girl zebra named Phoenix who calls Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge home!


As shared via Disney’s Animals, Science and Environment Facebook: “Coming off the hooves of a new foal born at Animal Kingdom, check out this fun #KeeperCam where Animal Keeper Jessie and her teammates from Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge celebrated Hartmann’s mountain zebra, Phoenix’s, first birthday. Synonymous with her name, Phoenix has been a joy and bright spot for the animal care team as they watch her blossom and continue her training. Phoenix enjoyed her fun ‘cake’ made with carrots, oats and parts of her daily diet.”
