Camel Drool

I can't imagine what this camel's breath must smell like, assuming camel drool has a stench. It's like watching a train wreck - you can't help but stare into his yawning mouth.

In the camel's defense, though, that saliva must come in useful when they have to go up to 2 weeks without water. Their humps can weigh as much as 80 lbs, and it's all fat, too. Kind of puts your belly in perspective, doesn't it?

Camel breath is possibly the foulest stench I have ever had the misfortune of smelling. A cross between really stinky poo and something dead!

Lovely. I can't wait to be breathed on myself!
