"Photograph wobbly camels" Naryn Oblasty Things to Do Tip by Eish
Naryn Oblasty Things to Do: 5 reviews and 7 photos
Bactrian camels in the snow - this was an eye-opening moment for me. Bactrian camels have 2 humps (whereas Dromedary camels have only 1). These animals are on the critically endangered list in the wild and most of them are domesticated today. (The dromedary is extinct in the wild.) They live in a phenomenal range of ecosystems: I was surprised to find them in the high altitude snow, but they are happy here and just as adapted to the cold as they are to the heat of a desert.
Their humps that have fallen contain fat. They wobble to one side when the camel uses up the fat content inside them.
