Stork Pays Visit to Lee Richardson Zoo


Garden City, KS (westernkansasnews.com) The Lee Richardson Zoo is happy about their newest addition to the Wild Asia exhibit.  A new male Bactrian camel was born late last week to proud parents Mona and Khan.  It’s the ninth calf both have brought into the world.  The baby is 4 ½ to 5 feet tall and weighs 125 pounds.  Bactrian camels are an endangered species with only 600-900 left in the world.  Most of them live in the Gobi Desert of Mongolia.
