The Zoo Introduces A New One Year Old Camel Named Baika To The Public

Riverview Park & Zoo has introduced a new camel to the public. Baika, a Bactrian camel, is about a year old and was excited to meet Zaya and Gobi, the zoo announced in a tweet.

"We're very excited to have Baika join our camel exhibit," the zoo's Manager and Curator Jim Moloney tells PTBOCanada. "She came to us from a truly amazing and world class zoo in Quebec, called Zoo sauvage de St. Félicien."

"Baika is just more than a year old and she's just been introduced to our existing camels Zaya (female, 7 years old) and Gobi (male, 9 years old)," Moloney tells PTBOCanada.

Baika has actually been here for a few months, but she's been off-exhibit to meet quarantine requirements and during her initial training.
