Beautiful creature aren't they? I also saw camels in a circus in our area a few weeks ago. It's fascinating to see one.

I saw camels out with the Bedoins in Israel. They are fascinating creatures.

At one time there were camels in the interior of B.C., used for carriers during the Gold Rush(s) - I understand they are not very agreeable creatures.

Thanks for sharing these beautiful photos of yours. I haven't seen such animals in person. Well, thanks to books and internet.

The photo intrigued me! Ahhh, yes, Texas tends to have these exotic animal farms but I've never seen a camel in one. Neat post!

That Camel is so shy. He didn't show his face even once.
