You'll NEVER guess this country - but the national flag is blue, yellow and red. #WITWICS #FindCarmen

Bactrian camels are well equipped with two humps, both of which store large amounts of fat to see them through lean times. They inhabit arid regions and are found along rivers in Siberia during winter, dispersing into the desert when the snow melts in spring. They prefer a diet of plants, but when such nutrient sources are not available these highly adaptable animals will feed on bones, and in extreme conditions may eat rope, sandals and even tents!

Bactrian camels are well suited for cold climates with rugged terrain. With their shorter legs and stout bodies they can walk over slippery surfaces that dromedary camels can't handle.
