Two New Additions to the Syracuse Zoo

Last week the Rosemond Gifford Zoo announced that they were having a naming contest for a new penguin chick that was born in February. Well, the penguin chick isn't the only new addition, two Bactrian camels named Patrick and George are going to call the zoo home. County Executive Joanie Mahoney was on site to welcome the brothers who are relatives of a type of camel that's severely endangered in their natural habitat. Both camels have two humps, which is where they store fat to sustain themselves when there's no food in the wild. According to the zoo, the duo is getting used to the zoo's atmosphere and should be out for the public to see this summer.
