Camel

Camel

CooperToons has sung the praises of many inhabitants of the earth - pigs, cows, elephants, giraffes, cats, dogs, and gorillas. But he was aghast to find out that he had omitted any representatives of the genus camelus. Of course, as long as you're aghast in my house feel free to do what you want, but here's a camel.

But not just any camel. This was a very friendly camel who stuck his head into the window as the CooperToons automobile drove through a safari park. This was one of the parks where you got a bucket of animal feed and could stop and feed the animals. A similar encounter at the same park was with a rhea, the ostrich-like bird of South America. Needless to say having a camel stick his head through your window is a bit more memorable.

Despite their reputation for discourtesy, this was a very well-mannered camel who did not spit.
