Viego, a lively baby dromedary, came out of the nursery at the Réserve Africaine de Sigean

Pink notebook at the African Reserve with the birth of a baby dromedary, which has just put its muzzle out to discover the world.

Long live Viego! This baby dromedary – we say a camel – is almost 2 months old already! Indeed, he was born on April 2, at the African Reserve of Sigean. The long gestation of more than a year of Fiesta his mother, then the birth took place under the watchful eye of the park’s veterinarians. The farrowing went well for this little 35 kg…

You can attend the feeding in the park to become familiar with this animal

Viego, after a few weeks in the nursery, is now happily frolicking outside and flourishing with these summer heats which are perfectly suited to his first months. He is fiery and curious about everything…He now measures 1.60m and is discovering the park but also socializing with the rest of the female herd: Rosita, Pepita, Alba and Ibiza. Dad Gaïan will only be put back with the rest of the group later, because the male risks being a little too enterprising with females in heat and risks jostling and injuring the little one. The breeding group is made up of 6 camels. The Reserve does not have camels.

Females raise their young for a long time

If the reproductions of certain animal species are extremely rare within the parks, this is not the case for dromedaries, and the African Reserve has already seen several births in the past. However, females do not give birth to young every year because they raise them for several years.
