Come Meet Our Camels
You can’t miss the two big humps on our Bactrian camels’ backs, but spend a little more time with them and you’ll see that they’ve got big personalities to match. Sometimes you’ll even see these shaggy beasts bounce, gallop and kick their legs. But they have a serious side too – fat-storing humps, bushy eyebrows, shaggy coats, long eyelashes and wide, flat feet help them survive some of Mother Nature’s hottest and coldest temperatures.
A very thirsty camel can drink 135 litres (30 gallons) of water in only 13 minutes.
