Tree of Life Carving

There are 320 animals carved into the Tree of Life in Disney’s Animal Kingdom.  I found this one of a giraffe along one of the trails which serpentine among the tree’s roots.

    That’s great! I love the imagination that went into it. It’s also the kind of wildlife photography that I could do!

    • Now, Terry, you do just fine out there in Big Sky country with capturing the local wildlife.

      It’s hard to come up with something new and differnt at a place like Walt Disney World where millions of photos are taken each day. I doubt this one is unique but I liked showing the dimension of the carving with the water behind it.

    I’m wondering if the tree is alive or like so many other Disney attractions, man made.

    • Oh, yes, this tree is man-made as are a few others things in the park. Disney always takes the time to use natural landscapding throughout each of their parks and Animal Kingdom is one of their best examples. While the Tree of Life is not real, the forests and jungles surrounding use landscaping inspired by the continents of Africa, Asia and North America.
