I don’t know how this one got though, but alongside cats, birds, a few reptiles and fish, you can apparently also have a pet camel in Canberra without registration.
Does this sound weird to anybody else ?
You can have one as a pet 🙂
Of course, one needs ready access to a camel….
Camel Fillet with a Shiraz Butter Glaze
Degree of difficulty: Low
1 camel fillet trimmed of sinew and cut into medallions
4 small onions, sliced
1 carrot, finely chopped
250 ml shiraz or other red wine
250 ml beef stock
To make the glaze, put olive oil and onions, carrots and celery in a pan and fry until slightly brown. Add cut up camel trimmings and cook until brown. Then add wine and beef stock. Simmer for approximately 30 minutes. Strain and whisk in butter pieces until the liquid has a buttery glaze.
Brush camel fillet with olive oil and grill to your taste.
To serve pour shiraz butter glaze onto a plate, arrange camel medallions in a pyramid shape and serve with tossed salad.

There will of course be an R18+ version:
“Comrade on the Hump” (camel’s hump, that is…)
“The Comrade and the Camel”
That sounds like a good title for a movie, a fairy tale a bit like the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe….
No, it’s not “Lawrence of Arabia”: it’s a totally new film called “Stanhope of Manuka”. It’s an epic about coffee and blamestormimg.
