We dug through the archives this week and found a video gem to share with Disney Parks Blog readers before our celebration of the 15th anniversary of Disney’s Animal Kingdom. It’s a 60 second look at how the parks’ Tree of Life was created.

The 145-foot-tall tree was designed as a symbol of the circle of life and features 325 animals sculpted into its roots, trunk and branches.
