That whole bit about the “Camel Corps”? Yeah, read more about it here. We were curious too.
About the giant camel: In 2015, a genome study discovered that the American Camel that is mentioned in the episode is actually closely related to today’s domestic Asian camel, not Llamas as previously thought, and mentioned on the show. Who knew you would want more camel facts!
