Meet Gemma, a Bactrian camel at the Greater Vancouver Zoo. At nearly 8 feet tall, she’s a beaut. Bactrians are the largest of all living camel species. Native to central Asia, these guys are special for rocking two humps instead of one. Their woolen coats, tolerance for high altitudes and unique humps make them the perfect companions for long, arduous journeys. Unfortunately, due to hunting and habitat loss, the population of non-domesticated Bactrian camels continues to dwindle.
