CLOVIS, N.M. (KRQE) – The Hillcrest Park Zoo in Clovis recently welcomed a new baby. The baby Bactrian camel was born on April 10. Bactrian camels have 2 humps where they store fat, not water.
While he looks small now, the little guy is expected to grow up to 10 feet long. He’s also eventually expected to weigh between anywhere from 1,500 to 2,000 pounds.
The baby Bactrian camel is now on display at the Hillcrest Park Zoo. He can be seen in the front habitat, fairly close to the entrance of the zoo.
