Camelus bactrianus

The Bactrian Camel has two humps and a color varying from deep brown to dusty gray. The long hair is thickest on the head, neck, humps, forelegs and tip of tail. Fur sheds rapidly and in clumps. The height of the bactrian camel is 1.84 to 2.4 meters at the shoulder. Their weight can range from 1,320 to 2,200 pounds. The nostrils can be closed to keep out dust and sand. Hooves form in front of the common sole so that camels do not sink into the sand. They walk in a digitigrade manner. (On the toes.)
