Dr. Penning wrote, “Like many of the animals in our care, Nutmeg’s birth was recommended per the Association of Zoos and Aquariums’ Species Survival Plan. Babirusa pigs are a vulnerable species threatened by habitat destruction, making her birth a great contribution to their conservation.”

Nutmeg isn’t the only new baby at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Baby goats just joined the herd at Kilimanjaro Safaris.
