Images of two non-native camels roaming a road in Cao Bang Province, northern Vietnam have gone viral on social media over the past few days.

A leader of the administration of Xuan Truong Commune in Bao Lac District, Cao Bang Province said on Sunday that the two camels were first discovered in the commune in February this year.

At the time, authorities informed local residents of the animals to seek their owner.

Up to date, no one has received them.

Border guards in Xuan Truong have taken care of them since then and daily let them graze in nature.

Camels are native to deserts in Asia and Northern Africa.

Early this month, residents in Duc Long Commune, located in Cao Bang’s Thach An District, discovered four wallabies.

The wallabies -- which include three males and one female -- were brought from Australia by traffickers.

The marsupials, all of which are healthy and weigh between eight and nine kilograms, were later transported to the Hoang Lien Rescue and Conservation Center in Lao Cai Province, northern Vietnam.

"After arriving at the center, the wallabies will be raised in a semi-wild environment, with both indoor and outdoor areas," La Van Toi, director of the center, told AFP.

Residents of Cao Bang Province in northern Vietnam discovered the two camels in February 2023.
