|Cama (no scientific name has been given yet)|
The Cama is a hybrid between a camel and a llama.
This creature has been created artificially by scientists using artificial insemination due to the difference in height and size which exist between the two types of camelids.
Up to now they have impregnated a llama female with male dromedary semen matings of llama male to dromedary female have been unsuccesfull.
The Cama is quite small when born and doesn't have a hump. Their feet are similar to the llama and not similar to the dromedary.
Camas become sexually mature at the age of 4 although scientists still don't know if the Camas will be fertile.
