Cute and fuzzy

I love camels but I have never seen any this color in the UAE. Very beautiful!

Re: Cute and fuzzy

Thanks Deb.
These camels are of a different type than the one you find in the Middle East. In the winter time they have very thick, long fur. Also, they can take the altitude very well and I have seen camels close to 5000 meters!
In the Muztagh Ata valley you can see yaks and camels graze side by side, which must be quite uncommon.
