Just for Fun: Can You Tell One Species of Camel From Another?


webkinz cheats
Ganz has announced that they will be releasing a plushie Signature Bactrian Camel for sale in July 2011. For those of you who are wondering, the original Webkinz Camel that was released in 2008 is also a Bactrian.  Did you know that, in the real world, there are actually two distinct species of Camel?  In addition to the Bactrian, which lives in Central and East Asia, there is also the Dromedary, which lives in West Asia.  
 
So, how do you tell the difference between the two?  Bactrian Camels have two humps on their backs, and Dromedary Camels have just one.  For an easy way to remember which name goes with which animal, just look at the very first letter of each.  Turn the letters on their sides, and they look like the backs of the camels.  The "B" in "Bactrian" has two humps, and the "D" in "Dromedary" has one.  Remember that tip, and you'll always be able to tell the two apart!
 
If you are looking to add a camel to your Webkinz family, check out Webkinz Insider's partner store, Ameriwade.  The original Camel is currently available for sale, and the Signature Bactrian Camel will be available for pre-order starting Wednesday, May 25.
