Interesting Animal - The Camel

Where would you expect to find the world's largest herd of camels? The Sahara? Nope - it's in Australia.

(Seemingly there are around 750,000 camels roaming wild in the outback, (between 2001 and 2008 it was estimated there were up to a million),  but they are not indiginous. Imported to Australia in the 19th century from Arabia, India and Afghanistan, for transport and heavy work in the outback, they now cause a lot of problems and are probably public enemy number 2, after the fecund rabbit.

Camel stew anyone?)

(We know a rhyme about camels, don't we children?)
