Coming back from further south a month ago, Mrs. F.G. suggested we drive over the road east of Arthur; she had seen a camel there on her way home earlier in the summer! I didn't quite believe her.
But we drove down that busy road, and there it was! Mrs. F.G. was vindicated. I squeezed the car off the road in the midst of traffic and crossed the road to get a picture. But wait! .... there are some extra legs behind that camel.
Yes, the mother camel had a calf. I've never seen a camel before outside a zoo, let alone a camel calf.
We watched for a few moments and the calf stuck very close to mama.
This is for all you ladies who also love puppies and kittens. Or maybe you don't have the same reaction to a baby camel's face?
When finally there was a break in traffic, we started to pull away, noticing another camel in a pasture with some horses. Dad perhaps?
