Camels Pack for Family Vacation
Willard and Christine Basler, two Bactrian camels from Central Asia, are taking their daughter Shelly on a trip to New York City for her birthday, and the family couldn’t be more excited.
"They’ve packed plenty of water," says friend Trudy Inwood. "They’ve got their phone chargers and toothbrushes, so I think they’re all set."
Tourist stops include the Empire State Building, Central Park and the American Girl Store.
