Wild China - Wild Bactrian camel - Netflix
The wild Bactrian camel (Camelus ferus) is a critically endangered species of camel living in parts of northern China and southern Mongolia. It is closely related to the Bactrian camel (Camelus bactrianus). Both are large, double-humped even-toed ungulates native to the steppes of central Asia. Until recently, wild Bactrian camels were thought to have descended from domesticated Bactrian camels that became feral after being released into the wild. However, genetic studies have established it as a separate species which diverged from the Bactrian camel about 1.1 million years ago. Only about 1,400 camels survive. Most live on the Lop Nur Wild Camel National Nature Reserve in China, and a smaller population lives in the Gobi Desert in Mongolia.
