Dromedary Camel

Baby Dromedary Camel   3 month old Dromidary Camel

Dromedary Camel (1 hump) Bactrian Camel (2 humps).
     At GarLyn Zoological Park we have the Dromedary Camel and pictured above is Achmed. In this picture he is about 6 months old and extremely gentle. We got him in August of 2007 at about 6 weeks old. Camel will eat or at least chew on almost anything, so what ever you want to keep, make sure it's out of their reach. Camel are desert animals and do very well on poor rations.

     It takes about 3 or 4 years before camels are mature enough for breeding and after about 2 years old you can start to ride them.

 

We lost our first camel Tricksee in May of 2006. She was a great camel and missed by many.
