The Bactrian camel, also known as the Mongolian camel or domestic Bactrian camel, is a large even-toed ungulate native to the steppes of Central Asia. It has two humps on its back, in contrast to the single-humped dromedary camel. Its population of two million exists mainly in the domesticated form.

Archaeological evidence indicates that the bactrian camel was domesticated in Mongolia and China about 5,000-6,000 years ago, from a now-extinct form of camel. Evidence for the domestication of Bactrian camels has been found as early as 2600 BC at Iran.


There are currently three extant species of camels living in the world of which two are domesticated species (dromedary camel, and domesticated Bactrian camel) and one is wild (wild Bactrian camel).We are much grateful to you for following us. Happy to have you here, and would like to make it worth your time. Alufelwi Farm will always be here to engage with you at all times; do not be hesitant to get in touch with us.
