Artie is what we call a unicameral camel…he has ONE hump on his back.
Because Artie was a unicameral camel, he was in pain with many back problems. ----- In pain!!!
Artie’s one- humped back was broken and had all kinds of problems! He needed to go to the doctor in Philadelphia to get it fixed! The vet was not sure if he should just repair the one hump or create a whole different back for Artie!!! ?????
Artie’s doctors decided to create a whole new back for Artie!
After going through a complete makeover, Artie became a happy bicameral camel. Artie has two humps on his back instead of one!
