Bactrian camels can be found in the desert regions of central and Eastern Asia. Unlike dromedary camels, Bactrian camels can easily be distinguished by the two humps on their back. They’re quite large, and can be over 7 feet tall and weigh over 1,800 pounds.
History: Bactrian camels are often heralded for their efficiency as pack animals. They’re able to carry up to 500 pounds, and can walk up to 30 miles a day. They were believed to have been domesticated 3,500 years ago in either Afghanistan or Turkey. However, due to incomplete and spotty records, it’s difficulty to clarify which culture first domesticated them.
