Baby camel takes very first steps

Here you see the wonderful gift of life in its purest form. This video shows a camel and her calf and one of their first moments together. This calf is getting all the courage it can from its mom to stand up on its legs. Here we witness the miracle of life and the calf's first steps. The wild can be very unforgiving which means that the calf needs to take its first steps as soon as a couple of hours after its born. This is a process in which the mom helps her calf by encouraging it and helping it stand up. As that happens they are both on their way through the wild in search of food and water. The calf stays by its moms side for a couple of years until its strong and confident enough to be able to make it on its own. Again, you must take a look at this amazing footage of an adorable baby camel in the moment it takes its very first steps. This video was filmed at Sosto Zoo, Hungary.
