The construction walls have come down around Animal Kingdom’s iconic figure: the Tree of Life. The walls have been up for the past few months as Disney has added new animals into the roots of the Tree as well as widening the walkway through Discovery Island.
Twelve new animals have been added to the roots of the Tree of Life, including a buffalo, alligator, and an elephant. The new area has quickly become a great photo spot for guests visiting Animal Kingdom with the tree as a beautiful backdrop. The new area shows an almost unimpeded view of the tree.
The twelve new animals of the roots are: Buffalo, Ram, Beaver, Crocodile, Baby Ant Eater, Mommy Ant Eater, Macaw, Deer, Monitor Lizard, Hermit Crab and Elephant. See if you can spot them all in our photos.
