Artist's Description

These are the famous camels of Cable Beach, Broome. They were originally feral camels, captured and trained to be ridden. It is now a very popular tourist thing to do, ride the camels on Cable Beach. My wife went for a ride, but i did not think my back or the camels back would survive if I tried it. Camelus dromedarius, lives for about 30 years in the wild and 40-50 years in captivity. Bull camels weigh about 800-1000kg and a cow will weigh 600-800 kgs. A domestice camel will drink 20-30 litres of water per day, and a severelly dehydrated camel can drink 100 litres of water in 10 minutes. There are approximately one million feral camels in Australia and there is increasing demand for their export to arabian countries. Canon 5D, 17-40 mm lense at 17 mm.
