Camel Foal born in Győr Zoo!

Recently, the visitors could welcome a newcomer, as a two-humped camel foal was born in the Xantus János Zoo in Győr. Múmia – the camel mare, having a Dutch origin – has proved to be a very attentive mother, she has carefully preserved her baby from the very beginning. On the day of her birth, the she-camel could stand and even walk with a little bit uncertain steps around her mother in the corral and on the following day, she bravely ventured out to the paddock as well.

The beautiful foal has been named Bolor – it means crystal in Mongolian – which is a worthy name for the gangling, slender-built and bright-eyed camel baby.

The camel foal, Bolor and her mother feel really good and they can be seen in the camel paddock.

It is worth walking in the zoo open-eyed in summer, too, as every season holds some pleasant surprises for the visitors. Come and visit the Zoo of Győr, find the charming camels and spend an eventful day there.
