The female drops a single foal on every second year after 390-410 days of gestation. The young may be fully grown at 5 years of age. The crossbred "Rama" resulting from the crossing between a . camel and a llama has been successfully produced for the first time at the Camel Production Centre at Dubai. Life span: In captivity, camel may live for 25-30 years.
