And finally… taking the hump

Saudi Arabia has cracked down on camels artificially enhanced with Botox and other means being submitted to beauty contests.

More than 40 camels competing in this year’s King Abdulaziz camel festival were disqualified, the largest number ever, The Guardian reports.

Judges in the contest, where $66 million in prize money is at stake, are using advanced technology to detect camel touch-ups.

Camel breeding is a major industry in Saudi Arabia, with beauty contests taking place across the country.
