An adorable baby elephant has joined Disney’s Animal Kingdom savanna! Baby Corra is the newest addition to the African elephants at the park.

We can think of few things that brighten our days more than meeting the new baby animals at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. In 2023 alone, the park welcomed over 300 new additions, including a set of baby cotton-top tamarins and two Hartmann’s mountain zebra foals. And in December, Disney revealed a new infant at Animal Kingdom, a 218-pound bundle of joy!

New Baby Elephant on the Savanna at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

African elephant Nadirah gave birth to her first calf on December 13, 2023. Weighing 218 pounds, baby Corra is currently bonding with her mother backstage at the park. African elephant births are planned through the Association of Zoos and Aquarium Species Survival Plan, which helps to ensure the responsible breeding of endangered animals. The birth came after Nadirah’s nearly 22-month pregnancy when she was taken care of by a full team of Disney Cast Members who oversaw both her care and the eventual care of her newborn calf.

And now, as of February 2024, Corra has joined her family out on the savanna at Disney’s Animal Kingdom! She is joining a herd that includes her aunts Stella and Luna, as well as her grandmother, Donna. Corra is now two months old and weighs in at a whopping 312 pounds!

Corra is the first second-generation elephant in Animal Kingdom’s history, making her debut extra special. You can go spot her now on the savanna while riding Kilimanjaro Safaris!
