Walt Disney World has welcomed Penny, the newest addition to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park!

This sweet yellow-backed duiker calf was born earlier this month to mom Pearl. The birth of Penny is an incredible milestone, as the last yellow-backed duiker calf born in our care was over 20 years ago.

Mom and baby are backstage now, but later this summer this adorable pair can be found on the Gorilla Falls Exploration Trail.
