News flash: Giant camel eats Canberra

By Kerces 30 December 2005 23


As I was returning from a picnic (in the shade) by the lake on this hot summer’s day I looked up at Black Mountain, as Canberrans do fairly regularly, and, to my horror, saw a giant camel devouring Telstra Tower.

I went and found a camera and dutifully took some shots to share with you all the reason why your mobiles may not work tomorrow, seeing as our main telecommunications infrastructure had just been taken out.

When I got home I called Urban Services, but they were all on holidays, so I guess the giant camel will probably be allowed to roam our fair city until they all get back.

(Well you’re all on holidays right, so I can write whatever I want…)

What is the difference between a one humped camel and a two humped camel?

A two humped camel is called a Bactrian Camel. These are Asian camels, which come form the deserts of China and Mongolia. These camels have thick, warm, long, shaggy coats in winter and are equipped for very extreme temperatures. They can withstand cold down to 40 degrees below zero. In summer they shed and can take heat up to 120 degrees farenheit.

Dromedary camels have one hump. These camels come from North and East Africa. They have a shorter fiber coat, even in winter, and they are typically taller than Bactrians at the humps. Dromedaries are not equipped for the degree of cold which Bactrians can withstand, and I always make sure that my Dromedary has a solid shelter from the wind, cold and rain.

I think that a Bactrian camel would be more suitable for Canberra’s temperature climes, although I still haven’t found anybody willing to sell me one as a pet.
