Cama [Camel + Llama]
A cama is a hybrid between a camel and a llama, produced via artificial insemination by a breeder in Dubai attempting to create a animal with the size and strength of the camel, but the more cooperative nature of the llama. The Dromedary camel is six times the weight of a Llama, hence artificial insemination was required to impregnate the Llama female (matings of llama male to Dromedary female have proven unsuccessful).
Though born even smaller than a Llama calf, the cama had the short ears and long tail of a camel, no hump and llama-like cloven hooves rather than the dromedary-like pads. At four years old, the cama become sexually mature and interested in llama and guanaco females. This first cama has been a disappointment behaviorally, displaying an extremely poor temperament.
