Betcha never seen a camel run before! Usually when we think of camels, we imagine slow-paced mammals that plod across the desert, but this video dispels those notions. Do you think camels gallop gracefully like a horse or clumsily like a giraffe? Watch the race between a girl and camel and see who wins.
I've discovered gold! Well, I might as well have, because I just found my favorite Spring editorial, and it's no surprise that it features one of my top Eastern European models, Natasha Poly. The blond babe poses with camels in Vogue Paris's March issue, wearing all sorts of inspiring, printastic ensembles by Isabel Marant, Pucci, Lanvin, Etro, and more. The key takeaways here are: mixing prints is still fresh, layers and color rule, and pile on the accessories. Enter to witness Natasha and her camel crush.
On Friday, Martha Stewart twittered about her neighbors' newest pet: a baby Camel! Born last Thursday, this little guy can weigh around 80 pounds at birth, so I hope the proud owners have plenty of space for them to roam (and from the looks of the picture, I'd say they do).
Although camels are generally found in desert climates, this lucky guy gets to call Connecticut home for now. I've seen some strange pets in my day, from monkeys to pot bellied piggies, but never a camel! What's the strangest pet you've ever seen?
I am baby camel hear me . . . roar? Since I wasn't so sure what noise these creatures made, I did a bit of research and turns out they moan, groan, bleat, and roar. (Trivia tidbit — they also make a rumbling growl that served as one of the sounds creating Chewbacca's voice in the Star Wars movies!)
I've gotten a bit off track but, no matter what Jenny is trying to say here, I'm answering back – this lil J's already absolutely adorable. Meet the one-day-old (!) camel seen with her 17-year-old mother at the Budapest Zoo Park and Botanic Garden. Jenny weighs about 77 pounds and can snuggle right up to Jolan. Hopefully, she won't start the trademark camel spit up yet!
Great job captioning this silly photo! You made it quotable with these clever ideas:

It’s time to get clever! A picture is worth a thousand words, but those messages vary from person to person. I think this photo tells a good story, but what do you think? Suggest quotes or captions for this photo in your comments below, and I’ll do a roundup next week of some of my faves.
A seven-year-old in Tel-Aviv, Israel has created a bright yellow camel vest with the help of his father in an effort to prevent the many car crashes that happen when camels cross the road.
The boy came up with the idea for the vest as part of a school project after hearing about a driver who was killed in a collision with a camel in the desert. Israeli police say 10 motorists have been killed in the last 10 years after colliding with stray camels in Israel, according to Reuters. Apparently, similar accidents have been reported in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and the United Arab Emirates.
The father-son design team doesn't have any plans to market the vests, but they hope others will adopt the idea and help save lives.
A friend of mine recently moved into a new apartment. To help her celebrate, I decided to get her a cute teapot. While looking for one, I came across this chamomile camel teapot ($24). Part of me thinks it's adorable, but there's something about it that hasn't won me over. How about you? Are you in to this docile dromedary?
