ORLANDO, FLORIDA – Disney’s Animal Kingdom welcomes a baby mandrill, born on August 8 at the park. Mandrills are the largest and one of the most colorful species of monkey.
The birth is the result of a match made through the Species Survival Plan (SSP) by Disney Animal Operations manager Rebecca Phillips, who serves as the SSP coordinator for mandrills and consults on mandrill breeding for zoos around the world.
