What is a hybrid camel? It is not a camel that runs on electricity, but a camel with a wide heritage that eats hay and a variety of plants! Herbie, as he is affectionately called, is a mixture between a one-hump camel called a Dromedary and a two-humped camel called a Bactrian. His parents met in captivity and from a young age, Herbie was destined for greatness in the world of education as an animal ambassador! This tall, handsome fellow loves to meet new friends and enjoys walks around the Angeles Forest, taste testing the local leaves.
The older but shorter brother of Herbie, this one hump camel is no “one hit wonder”. In fact, this animal ambassador thrives on teaching audiences the differences between camel species and about the camelid family! He also loves spending his time being admired and will provide soft kisses in exchange for treats. Chico may not be as tall, but this fabulous guy has a gift for building a fan club with his long lashes and gentle prehensile lips!
The oldest of the three camels at Reptacular Ranch, Sully is a bulky but gentle two-hump camel that loves to be groomed. His longer fur is characteristic of his Mongolian ancestors and their nomadic lifestyle in a very cold, dry desert. Sully's coat is also white, making him stand out against his two "brothers". This wonderful dude can't wait to be brushed by you, in fact, he may even thank you by blowing air into your nostrils!
