North America was soon overrun by ruminants—deer, oxen, camels, bison, and several species of rhinoceroses. Enormous herds of horses joined the camels on the western plains of North America.  North American camels went to China.  Llamas and giraffelike camels mingled with the horses on the grazing plains.  During these early epochs of the ice age North America was overrun with mastodons, woolly mammoths, horses, camels, and others. 
Camels were domesticated by 5000 B.C.
