Jump that hump! Competitive camels and the games they play
What’s tall, blonde, and athletic? Well, camels might not be the first thing that springs to mind, but this humped animal is pretty much the face of desert life across the Arab world.
Camels have been hard at work sustaining the Bedouin lifestyle for thousands of years. As a mode of transportation, a source of food, and a sign of status and wealth, camels have some serious responsibilities.
But they’re good for more than just the practical stuff. Actually, they've got some wild tricks up their hoofs! Can you knock someone over with your neck, run 40 mph with a robot on your back, or predict World Cup matches with abnormally consistent accuracy? Didn't think so! Take a look at these impressive competitions that camels are putting their humps into like never before!
