Wikipedia tells us that a two humped camel is called the Bactrian Camel. The name comes from the ancient historical region of Bactria.

Good that you did a search.... But no credit for Google.

Bactrian camel Even though Stan Menashes (we were an ‘item’ at PS 53 I learned at our 50th Teunion) beat me, I thought I would still enter the ‘contest’.

Correct answer. I assume you like camel milk? That is the prize.
