Oh what gorgeous eyes you have, my dear! This striking camel is a “faux” form of taxidermy (real fur, but not that of the species portrayed). While real camels hail from Asia, our research indicates that this petite model may have French heritage. An extremely handsome and rare fellow.
Vintage plastic and animal fur. Due age, his legs may be delicate. Not a toy. Approximate measurements: 5" tall, 6" tail to nose, 2 " wide. Fur on left side is slightly clustered (see third photo).
Camels with two humps are Bactrian (Camelus bactrianus) while those with a solo hump are Dromedary (Camelus dromedarius). The humps store fat, which allows camels to persevere bravely through harsh conditions without food or water, for long stretches of time. A small number of endangered Wild Bactrian Camels still roam free in the Gobi Desert.
