Monday 28th March, Easter Monday was an emotional day for the visitors to Falconara Zoo thanks to the birth of a baby camel ((Camelus bactrianus).
Mother Clara, not bothered about the amount of visitors present at the zoo there to enjoy Easter Monday in the open air, decided that the time was right, and after a gestational period of 12-13 months, she gave birth to her little one. Angelo is his name.
Many visitors stayed in front of the enclosure for a long time, to see him take his first steps and watch his parents take care of him.
Angelo will be breastfed for about a year, the necessary time to form his distinctive humps, important reserves of fat, of which he is without at the moment.
