24.11.2021 – Photos by Michelle Rippey

This time Michelle presents a charming young man in the Milwaukee County Zoo.

The male Bactrian camel Oliver was born the morning of April 13 to parents Addie-Jean (better known as A.J.) and Stan.

The first three photos were taken when Oliver was 26 weeks old – or young. He’s a real golden boy!

Oliver had already learnt how to pose nicely for his fans’ cameras. 🙂

A week later Oliver was cuddling with daddy Stan.

It’s week 28 and it was raining when Michelle spotted Stan & Oliver enjoying a bit of father & son time.

It’s nice to cuddle with you but now I have other things to do … See you later, dad!

Oliver loves his dad and, of course, he loves mama as well – especially when it’s feeding time. 🙂

After a good meal a nap is needed! Bye bye!

  1. Dear Michelle and Mervi
    I love camels and little Oliver is definitely a golden boy.
    I forgot to mention that a herd of camels live next door to Project Polar 2 and are always keen to see visitors.

  2. Dear Michelle and Mervi!
    Little Bactrian camels are adorable and they have the most beautiful eyes with eyelashes that every woman envies.
    Thank you for these charming pictures!

    Hugs
    Anke

  3. Liebe Mervi

    klein sind sie ja niedlich, aber ausgewachsene Kamele sind jetzt nicht meine Lieblinge,
    auch wenn sie tolle Augenwimpern haben°

    Herzliche GrĂĽĂźe
    Britta-Gudrun
