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.
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.
