An imposing animal, the Bactrian camel can reach seven feet in height and weigh up to 1,500 pounds. The species' thick, brown coat changes with the seasons. During winter, it thickens to provide added insulation against the cold while large chunks of fur are shed in the summer to keep the animal cool. Both male and female Bactrian camels have two large humps on their backs.
