Spring sees four camel calves born at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo
Tuesday 15 May 2007
No less than four bactrian camel calves have been born this Spring and can be seen snuggling up to their mothers in their paddock at the Asian Drive-through.
These two-humped species, a domestic breed of the Bactrian camel, were all born in April to four separate mothers. Now they are taking their first brave steps out with the rest of the herd and can be seen by visitors on their journey on the Jumbo Express train, in the paddock at the edge of the Asia drive-through.
The camel calves, three females and one male, have been given names by their proud keepers. They are: Genghis, Georgia, Gypsy and Ginny born to mothers Jubilee, Hayley, Clarissa and Sherry.
