I think this is just one of those classic images of when one imagines a Middle Eastern desert scene with the camel at rest and the tent off in the distance. If you look closely, you can see the little head of a baby camel peeking out over his mama’s shoulders. The four lined scars on the camel’s thigh are actually branding, similar to cattle branding. It is achieved by applying a hot poker to the camel’s skin. Below is a short video that shows the camel branding process. I find it amazing that one of the guys holds onto the camel by the mouth with his bare hands.
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE OF ARABIA (formerly SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE), which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
