This may be the best news you read all day! A new baby has arrived in Disney’s Animal Kingdom!

Why do people love baby animals so much? Perhaps it is because they are adorable! Or is it something deeper? Is it that people love the hope that new life inspires?

Whatever your reason for stopping by to celebrate Disney’s new addition, we are glad you are reading along with us.

We are so excited to announce that the Stork has delivered- A STORK. A new baby Abdim’s stork has hatched!

What exactly is an Abdim’s stork, you may ask? Abdim’s storks are native to  Sub-Saharan Africa and Yemen. This is the smallest known species of stork. Adults are easily identifiable by their signature black feathers, blue face and, red patches near each eye.

Also, you will be happy to know that the Abdim’s stork is not listed on the critically endangered list. In fact, while these storks do appear on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species they fall under the category of “least concern,” and we certainly hope that trend continues!

Where to See The Baby

If you want to see the baby, you might be in luck. You can try spotting this chick and other storks when you visit Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

This particular baby lives in DinoLand U.S.A. If you head over to Dinosaur, you might spot this baby in an enclosure at the front of the attraction.
