Pricilla and Camilla are Arabian camels, also called dromedary camels, which means they have one hump. Pricilla is the oldest and the largest and is approx. 4 years old. Camilla is lighter in colour and is approx. 2 years old. Both of our camels will eat out of your hand – but please only feed them at the allocated time and when a staff member is present. You will notice our camels have coarse salt available to them – it is important part of their diet and helps to keep their nutrition balanced. Our camels also have a pick of grass but their main staple is clean, fresh hay – and lots of it!
This quirky trio love nothing more than to lap up the attention! Tommy came to us from down Melbourne way earlier last year. Dolly came to us from Linley Park after the tornado and Dudley was born on Old Woperana on 31 October 2013 and bottle raised from 4 days old. They are affectionate loving little darlings, but don’t put your fingers too close to their mouths – can give the occasional cheeky nip! Known as the beasts of burden, these little stoic animals have been used in many countries for hauling loads throughout history. There is estimated to be 90 million donkeys in the world – 11 million of them are found in China and the best three in the world are found right here at Old Woperana!
