Rare Baby Camel makes debut at Hungary zoo

It is always interesting when a zoo is able to breed rare and endangered animals in captivity to help the animals not go extinct. This has happened at a zoo in Budapest this week with the birth of a rare baby camel reports Bangkok Post. The cute little camel is a wild Bactrain or Camelus bactrianus ferus species.

These camels are endangered and only about 800 to 900 of them are thought to be left in the world. The small group of camels roams the wild deserts in Mongolia and China. The little camel is named Llias and his father is a camel from a zoo in Miskolc.

Miskolc is a smaller city in Hungary. The camel was born last week but wasn’t presented to the public until this week to allow him time to bond with his mother according to zookeepers.

"When he was born there were problems, the baby was looking for milk from the mother, but as this was her first baby she had no experience," Zoltan Hanga, a spokesperson for Budapest Zoo told AFP.

"Us zookeepers had to hold down the mother and gently help the baby to feed."

Most of these camels left in the world are domesticated according to authorities. Interestingly the zoo where the camel was born is said to be one of the oldest zoos in the world. It was opened in 1866. The baby seems to be doing well and is healthy as is the mother.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
