Disney's Animal Kingdom News for January 24, 2018: Baby hippos and purple birds

Hippo Baby: As we all know by now, the park welcomed the birth of a hippopotamus a couple of weeks ago. Unlike the tiger cubs, the hippo has been immediately visible "on stage" in the Kilimanjaro Safari exhibit. In fact, staff has not yet examined the new born so the gender is unknown. Tuma and Henry are the parents and it is the first hippo birth in 13 years. While the baby will be in the exhibit, be warned it may be difficult to spot it, so good luck.

Purple Martins: Purple martins are a beautiful migratory bird that nests in WDW area. The birds migrate from the Amazon rain forest and are now starting to come to Disney World to nest. The flight is about 6,000 miles. For more on the preparations Disney makes for the birds' arrival click here.

  3. Originating from Asian designs, this bed type is now adapted for use of little ones. It is your best bet if you need to save on space and if you want a safer structure compared to other beds. If you need storage space, some platform beds are raised a bit higher and come with drawers under the bed frame. Since this is a bed that's set low on the ground, your kid can get in and out of the bed easily without really climbing, compared to the usual bed structures. This is a bed type you can choose for its space-saving feature, functionality, and style. kids house bed
