Camera Critters, Camel Head that cost me an Arm and a Leg.
Click on photos to enlarge.
This camel head had cost me an arm and a leg. As soon as the cameldriver saw me taking a picture of his animal, he wanted money and as I only had one hundred Egyptian pound notes, I gave him one and asked 80 pounds back. He gave me 10. I said:"No, eighty!"He gave me 5 more. I said:"NO EIGHTY"...He went to one of his colleagues to change the hundred pounds, and gave me 50. I shouted at him:"EIGHTY"! Then he grabbed my hat, which I like very much, and put a strange white headgear on my head and his own filthy red-white checked scarf around my neck. I got so angry that I threw his things in his face and grabbed my hat back. Then at last he gave me seventy pounds, and I gave up my attempt to get the eighty pounds.
Facts about Camels.(from:fohn.net/camel-pictures-facts/)
Camels have lived in some of the most desolate corners of our planet, and not only do they live, they thrive. Most large animals are unable to survive in these kinds of desolate places. This is because of their large requirement for resources such as food and water. Camels are able to use this to their advantage as a survival strategy. By living in deserts, mountains, and other arid places Camels are able to avoid predators, and others who would compete for resources. Camels are only able to do this because of their amazing ability to efficiently use the resources their environments provide. A camel can travel long distances which allow them to take advantage of the maximum number of resources. They can withstand a massive amount of dehydration which allow them to survive not only between watering holes, but sometimes between seasons. When at a watering hole camels are able to gorge themselves and rehydrate quickly. For food, camels are omnivorous. They can eat almost anything be it vegetation, meat, or bone,-- salty or sweet, a camels stomach knows no limits. But it is their temperament that is truly endeared the camel to man. Docile and sweet under a caring hand, but stubborn and angry if ill treated, the camel both wins your heart and your respect
