Disney’s Animal Kingdom is a unique blend of theme park and zoo. If you have ever visited Animal Kingdom you have likely seen many animals on the Kilimanjaro Safari attraction, or in some of the many exhibits found dotted around the park.
Speaking of dots, Disney’s Animal Kingdom is home to one famous and talented pig, Dottie! Have you ever met Dottie?
Dottie is a talented and sweet pig, you may see her on a walk with a human friend while visiting Disney’s Animal Kingdom. One Disney Parks fan caught an interaction with Dottie on video and shared it on social media. Dottie can perform a few tricks and loves to put on a show for Guests, provided there are treats involved of course!
You can watch Dottie in action thanks to @merelymeredith on TikTok below:
This is a great look at how animals are used to interact and educate at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. The focus of the theme park is on education and conservation, and it is great for Guests to have these interactions with animals they might not have had a chance to meet outside of Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
Some animal interactions do not always go as planned. Recently once Guest was visiting the Gorilla’s at the Gorilla Falls Exploration Trail tucked away in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. While everything seemed to be going well at first, the Gorilla decided to fling its poop at the Guest! You can watch a video and read more details about that situation here.
