Overview

Hezekiah is a very hairy camel. He lives a quiet life in his enclosure at the zoo and seems to be the only animal without a friend. So Hezekiah decides to escape from the zoo and go on the run - crashing through hedges, hiding in toilets and breaking into a safari park! There he meets another hairy character - and finally makes a friend.
