This amazing one-on-one experience will happen at Summerfield Zoo, in Belvidere. But this isn't just any zoo. Summerfield Zoo is dedicated to conservation and education, and their newest addition, Bruno, is a testament to their commitment to animal welfare. There aren't yet details as to why Bruno has a new home but he'll be treated with love and care.

By exposing him to humans in a safe and controlled environment, he'll be better able to adapt to life in captivity and help educate future generations about camels and their place in the world.

And, by you meeting Bruno you will help to socialize him so he'll grow up to be a well-mannered adult camel who doesn't smoke.
