Walt Disney World announces the name of the newest baby zebra
Orlando, Florida. – Walt Disney World said Wednesday that the newest Mount Hartmann zebra pony has been given the name Zarina.
A zebra was born a month ago to her mother Zoe.
The Keepers chose the name Zarina because it means ‘golden name’ in Persian. It’s the perfect name for a pony born right after the golden anniversary of Walt Disney World Resort, Disney leaders said in a social media post.
Disney said the mountain zebra foal will imprint on its mother’s scent and keep the unique markings on its mother’s hind legs to distinguish it from others in the herd. Disney currently has three species of zebra across its resort including Hartmann’s mountain zebra, Griffy’s zebra, and plains zebra.
Disney said guests will be able to see a new zebra at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Inn.
Earlier this year, Disney announced the birth of Dash at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
