Around the World Pic: Camel’s in Jordan Drinking from Bottles


This was one of the sillier things I’ve seen in my day. The camel was making a whole lot of noise – honking and braying and doing lord knows what – and a bunch of tourists were watching this go down. This is at Petra, by the way, down by the Treasury.

In any case, one of the guides took a water bottle and brought it over to the camel who proceeded to suck all of the water down like he was a giant baby. When the guide let the bottle go the camel chewed it rapidly and then spat it out on the ground. You can already see one of two at his feet.

Very amusing.

Have you been to Petra? Jordan? Ridden a camel before?
