Huge and amazing, simply yet elegantly adorned (her handler makes a wonderful accessory, too).

And no, they did not spit. Why is that always the first thing people ask?

People in some parts of the world--Australia, parts of Africa and some portions of the Middle East--eat camel meat. Last year in Australia, 650,000 feral camels in the Outback were reportedly planned to be killed. The population was allegedly wreaking havoc on the desert ecosystem. But why? Like all things lame in the world, it was by the hand of man: The camels were an introduced species to the island nation in the mid 1800s, helping the Europeans conduct genocide on the indigenous people of the region, and now the animals--who had to learn to adapt to a new environment to survive--are being slaughtered for human error. Shocker.
