Dromedary Camel

About

Valued as a “beast of burden” the one-humped camel has been an integral piece of human society for thousands of years. Also known as the Arabian camel these even toed ungulates now only roam wild as an introduced species in the outback deserts of Australia! You can find our herd of domestic camels in the Australia section of the Zoo.
