I'll second that.
Apparently over the years the Arabs, who race them, have interbred their best stock like crazy to the point where they're all weak, wimpy, have bucked teeth and no chins......if you understand my point.
And while hunting on a property in Nth Western NSW about 2 years back I was told by the owner that there was a feral camel farm of sort next door.
A few had escaped onto his property and we weren't to shoot them as they were worth AUD$40,000 each!!
We happened to catch up with the 3 of them during the weekend, a adult male & adult female with junior in tow, and no word of a lie they were the biggest darned camels I've ever seen!!
Small wonder the Arabs wanted them.
We chased them down a dirt track in my pickup and we must've been doing about 40km/h(25mph) which is pretty good for a camel.
