Chilling Out on Hump Day

The cold weather this week doesn’t faze the Bactrian camels at the zoo’s Antelope & Zebra Area. See for yourself in this video of the herd munching fresh-fallen snow on the gunnite walls of its outdoor yard.

Winter temperatures can drop to 20 degrees below Fahrenheit in the rocky dessert terrain of this endangered species’ native Central Asia!

Here’s a warm-hearted suggestion: lend your support to their care with the purchase of a special holiday ADOPT gift package!

This year’s holiday ADOPT packages also feature two other endangered Asian species: Bactrian camel, Amur tiger and red panda—plus an option to add a special holiday experience that includes Ice Skating at Lincoln Park Zoo!
