Weeks-Old Zebra Foal Returns to Kilimanjaro Safaris Savanna at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

The Hartmann’s mountain zebra foal born at Disney’s Animal Kingdom last month is back on the Kilimanjaro Safaris savanna.

Keepers named the zebra foal ‘Dash’ because of his “spunky spirit” and a stripe on his shoulder identical to one on his mother. Some lucky guests got to see mom Heidi give birth to Dash while riding Kilimanjaro Safaris in May.


Dash and his older sister Asha were both born as part of the Species Survival Plan program, which is overseen by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. The program ensures responsible breeding and genetic diversity of hundreds of animal species.
