Guests who visit Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge and The Seas with Nemo & Friends at Epcot experience amazing biological diversity in the various species of animals that make their homes here.

Below are photos of just six of these animals. Can you identify them? Answers are at the bottom of the post.


Each of us can help to protect the biological diversity of our planet through our everyday actions. Any action that reduces waste, saves water or keeps it clean, or reduces emissions can help make the world a better place for wildlife and all of us.

  • I got 3 of 6. Where are the cuttlefish in AK? Phenomenal animals those…

  • We saw the Victoria crowned pigeon the last time we were in the aviary, and it’s stunning! The aviary itself is amazing; we were all looking in every direction trying not to miss anything! But when you turn around and see a bird so unique, it just stops you in your tracks!

  • Where is the Victoria Crowned Pigeon location in the Animal Kingdom? Is it in the Maharajah Jungle Trek?

    • Tim, you’re right! Guests can see the Victoria crowned pigeon in the beautiful aviary on Maharajah Jungle Trek.

  • Thanks for the great post! It is a wonderful reminder of the great diversity on our wonderful planet.
