Rajasthan government on June 30, 2014 decided to declare Camel as the state animal.
Earlier Chinkara was the state animal of Rajasthan but now the “Ship of Desert” will get the honor of being state animal of Rajasthan.
The decision was taken in a cabinet meeting chaired by chief minister Vasundhara Raje on the last day of the ‘Sarkar Aapke Dwar’ campaign in Bikaner. The cabinet also gave its nod to prepare an act for the protection and conservation of the animal which will help in checking smuggling and migration of the animal.
