Our World: Camel Trough

Saudi Arabia's native camels have only one hump and are the dromedary type.  This is a female mama camel.  The ropes around her torso are actually part of a bra she wears to prevent her baby from nursing too much so her milk can be sold to customers.  You can see the fabric barrier of the bra between her rear legs and stomach.  The trough is used for feed or water and is fashioned from an old water tank.
