Camel Rides at Naples Zoo
Limited Time: Now thru May 4, 2014

 



It’s said a camel is a horse designed by committee. That says more about bureaucracy than zoology and is certainly not the kindest of sentiments for these astounding “ships of the desert.” They are perfectly suited for their harsh, hot, and cold environments. A camel can even survive losing over 30% of its water. By contrast, most animals can’t survive half that loss. A double row of eyelashes protect their eyes during sandstorms during which they can even close their nostrils to keep out debris. Amazing!

Take a ride on one today at the Zoo between 9:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. It's just $5 per person. But don’t wait too long. They're only here through May 4, 2014!
