Wildlife Wednesdays: Baby Elephant Jabali is Growing and Thriving at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Our Disney’s Animal Kingdom guests have been “oohing and aahing” when they see our newest baby elephant Jabali, born August 24, on the Kilimanjaro Safaris and the Wild Africa Trek. Jabali, who weighed 311 pounds at birth, is growing and thriving. Our elephant care team reports that he weighed in this week at 464 pounds!

Disney Parks Blog readers have been big fans of Jabali, so the team thought you would appreciate seeing some video we captured of Jabali with his mom, Vasha, and other members of our elephant family on the savanna. Enjoy!

  • My husband and I took the safari tour back in October and were able to sit and watch Jabali play with Luna while we had our snack. What a wonderful and heartwarming experience! I was just so THRILLED that we were able to see Jabali and Luna, especially after following them here on the blog.

  • Check out the baby!
