What, have you never seen a Camel in the snow before? by sarasdadandmom

What, have you never seen a Camel in the snow before?

It is 23 degrees above Zero out and this Camel is dining on some hay, standing in the snow. I see nothing odd about that. LOL
Not exactly the desert

I know our area of the US would be desert except for the irrigation, but I think he took a wrong turn on the freeway somewhere. But what a great photo. Give us the story of this?? Why is he here? And where is it?

Cool shot

Wow, I wonder how camels do in cold weather! He is so cute.

You find the most amazing things to photograph, Terry! Great find!!
January 18th, 2014  
Is it genetically modified? LOL Only you can find these things, Terry!

@aglennc Well this is the corral of a Vets office. I do not know the story, but the camel has been there for several years and seems very healthy. School kids come and visit the animals

@deniseescovino I don't think so, it is at a Vets Office and has been there for years

@nana Not a neighbor, it is kept by a local Vet.

January 19th, 2014  
@scooter Wow, great to have you stop by, are you posting again?
January 19th, 2014  
Honestly, this is the first time I see a camel enjoying the snow... Nice capture.
January 19th, 2014  
Hope the camel is okay with it!
January 19th, 2014  
This is so funny and cool. Um, the desert would be more likely, but that camel looks very healthy and happy in the snow.

@lauriehiggins thanks Laurie, he looked healthy
January 19th, 2014  
@espyetta he seem to be enjoying himself

I like the Camel photo..and seeing one in the snow is a plus.
Great capture Terry.
January 19th, 2014  
No, definitely not. I cannot imagine a camel living in a place like that. But now I have to change my perception.
January 19th, 2014  
Well, there's a sight one rarely sees! Actually we don't see much snow around here either. :)

He / she seems to have adapted quite well to the change in climate

WHAT DAY IS IT???????

Isn't it weird it can live in the snow when it can also trek across a desert? Animals are so resilient.

You know at first you think "camels don't belong in the snow!" But I think they also live in Mongolia and that has snow, so I guess they can survive the extreme heat and extreme cold. But it does make for a great shot- definitely worth that second look!

It gets very cold in the desert in the winter depending on where you are.
