A Baby Mandrill is Born at Disney’s Animal Kingdom


On Saturday, July 25, a baby mandrill was born to first-time father, Linus, and mother, Scarlett at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park. The “colorful” addition and mom are doing well and spending time bonding. So much time in fact, that the mother mandrill was keeping the baby so tight to her body that the veterinary team could not find out the gender of the new baby.

Mandrills, a vulnerable species found in African rainforests, are actually the largest species of monkey in the world. They’re a vulnerable because their habitat is disappearing due to deforestation and poaching.


The Species Survival Plans (SSPs) assures responsible breeding for endangered species, such as mandrill monkeys, allowing for a healthy and genetically diverse population of such animals for years to come.
