Camel beauty pageants, in which camels are judged on their looks and dressage, are held all over Saudi Arabia.
They have become so popular in recent years that a respected Saudi cleric recently issued a decree against them, saying that they encouraged pride.
- "It's just like judging a beautiful girl," said Fowzan al-Madr, a camel breeder from the Kharj region southeast of Riyadh. "You look for big eyes, long lashes and a long neck — maybe 39 or 40 inches."
