Baby Mandrill Born at Disney’s Animal Kingdom – Welcome Ivy!

    Disney has just announced that a baby mandrill has been born at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and it’s a girl! Here’s the announcement welcoming Ivy to the troop:

    A baby mandrill has joined the family at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park. And what better time than during Earth Month?

    The little girl was born on Saturday, April 10, to first-time mom Hazel and dad Linus. Cast members named the infant Ivy to fit in with the rest of her colorful family – Olive, Scarlett, Snow and Hazel.

    Be on the lookout, because both have already been spotted by guests on Kilimanjaro Safaris. You might see the shy baby clinging to Hazel’s stomach, a natural bonding behavior. But this will change soon as the baby begins to walk within weeks of being born, spending most of the time walking underneath mom. The baby joins the troop of seven other mandrills that call Disney’s Animal Kingdom home.
