Animal Species by Area Animal Kingdom


Ever come back from a visit to Disney’s Animal Kingdom and wonder what it was you took a photo of? Well, perhaps this listing (with a few picture links) will help you identify your photos. While the list of animals comes from WDW, the photos are ones taken by myself or friends in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Every effort has been made to ensure accuracy; however, I am certainly not an expert. If you find a match that isn’t correct, please let me know.

The first animals in Animal Kingdom arrived in the Summer of 1996. They were two young giraffe named Miles and Zari.

This is an updated listing of wildlife from Walt Disney World for Animal Kingdom. Some of the animals have changed since opening. Also, from time to time, wildlife is taken off display or moved to another area.
