Orlando Sentinel’s Central Florida 100: DISNEY BIRTHING SEASON

, , Leave a comment

Mother Kendi, the first white rhino born at Disney’s Animal Kingdom back in 1999, is the first of three rhinos at Disney to give birth in the coming months – this one to a healthy 150-pound calf. Jao is due in the fall of 2021 and Lola in fall/winter 2021. The rhino gestation period lasts about 16 months, so the new births are being anxiously anticipated. Animal Kingdom’s population has increased this year with the births of a giraffe, a zebra, an aardvark and a porcupine … all proof positive that the world does continue to turn in an election year.
