Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge recently welcomed a new “resident” – a Ruppell’s Griffon Vulture hatchling that is a member of a threatened species. While weighing less than six ounces and about eight inches long when hatched, a vulture could grow to reach sizes close to three feet in height, with a wingspan of nearly eight feet, and can weigh 15-20 pounds. The baby and its parents reside on one of the unique resort’s savannas at Walt Disney World Resort.
