The Camel's hump is an ugly lump
Which well you may see at the Zoo;
But uglier yet is the hump we get
From having too little to do.
Near Winton, in western Queensland.
Camels (technically Dromedaries) are not native to Australia but are now living throughout the arid inland of our continent, with an estimated population in the order of one million. They are descendents of camels brought to Australia by Afghan and Pakistani cameleers, who used them to provide transport services during the 19th century for colonists who were spreading into Australia's outback. Camels (and colonists) do a lot of damage to fragile ecosystems but are present in numbers too large to control, and are loved by many in the outback.
That's crazy. One million. I would never have known there were any in Australia.
