BIOGRAPHY:

Doug Baum found his way into camel ranching by way of Nashville. A studio and touring musician for country acts like Trace Adkins, Doug found himself volunteering at a local zoo when he wasn't on the road or in session. He soon decided that working with animals was his true passion and founded the Texas Camel Corps in 1995. His ranch not only provides tourists with a unique experience, but also serves as an example of the history of camel use in the United States.
