The booming camel trade

They're tall and elegant and are part of an industry that's worth millions of dollars. We're talking about camels here.

The BBC has a fascinating report here about camel beauty contests in the United Arab Emirates where some of the beasts can fetch millions of dollars. One camel, if it's a beauty with a big head, big hump, firm ears, broad cheeks and big whiskers, can be worth more than a few Ferraris.

According to the camel traders, it's a growing industry. It's doing better than the struggling automotive and aviation sectors which are losing money.

The best camels, the experts say, are females because they look better. Still, you would need to hurry to get down there. You wouldn't want to get an ugly one.
