Photo Safari at The Wilds – The Bactrian Camel

One of the first animals we came upon on our tour was this Bactrian camel shoulder deep in the bushes.  Our guide told us that they ate some of the invasive species of plants and they were all for that.  There were other camels in the park but this one had so much more personality than the others who were just lounging around.  As we were in an open air bus, the animals were able to walk right up to us which many did but none, other than one pesky species that wanted to make off with cell phones or anything shiny, ever did anything even remotely frightening.

The Wilds has a system of fences and gates which reminded me of the movie Jurassic Park.  You drove into one gate that would open and then close behind you as you waited for the second gate to open for you.  We had quite a lively group in our section of the bus and many good (and groan worthy) jokes were made throughout the tour.  Jurassic Park ones came up often and I fear I may have started that.  Ooops!
