The Bactrian camel is a large, even-toed ungulate native to the steppes of Central Asia. It has two humps on its back, in contrast to the single-humped dromedary camel. Its population of two million exists mainly in the domesticated form.The name comes from the ancient historical region of Bactria.
The domesticated Bactrian camel has served as a pack animal in inner Asia since ancient times. With its tolerance for cold, drought, and high altitudes, it enabled the travel of caravans on the Silk Road. A small number of feral Bactrian camels still roam the Mangystau Province of southwest Kazakhstan and the Nubra Valley in India. The Wild Bactrian camel is a separate species and is the only truly wild (as opposed to feral) species of camel in the world.
This is a really attractive and dramatic display piece. It is 15 inches tall and 18 inches long. It is made of solid resin.
