The centerpiece of Disney's Animal Kingdom is the Tree of Life, a 140 foot tall tree with carvings of hundreds and hundreds of animals covering its trunk, roots, and branches. Nestled amid the burrowing roots at the base of the Tree of Life is a landscape of pools, meadows and trees—home to a variety of live animals, including lemurs, flamingos, kangaroos and tortoises.
