Double-humped camels of Ladakh: prospects and constraints to sustained survival

The Bactrian camel (Camelus bactrianus) is a large, even-toed ungulate native to the steppes of Central Asia. They are mainly found in cold deserts of China, Mongolia, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Kazakhstan1 . A small population of C. bactrianus also exists in India, distributed largely in the Nubra valley of Ladakh region (a cold arid desert in Trans-Himalayas), Jammu and Kashmir.
