Shortly after his birth, which took place in the zoo's outdoor camel habitat, the baby camel was spotted moving around on his own and spotted nursing from his mom on various occasions throughout the day. The newborn camel underwent a neonatal exam earlier in the week, where he weighed in at 94 lbs.
According to the zoo, Bactrian camels can grow up to 7 feet tall and weigh up to 1,800 pounds. The camels, which are native to central Asia, can be distinguished from other species of camel by their two humps — other camel species only have one hump.
Though he is considered to be at a "good" and "healthy" weight for a newborn, the zoo added that he is slightly smaller than the last male born to the zoo's other female camel, Sanchi.
As long as A.J.'s new calf continues on his positive growth path, he will make his public debut in the Milwaukee County Zoo's outdoor Camel Yard alongside his parents soon.
