Anyone who has been a regular follower of American Bedu blog knows that I simply adore camels!  Therefore, it is with great delight that I take a time out from a Saudi oriented post and share this link which introduces newly born Amelia.  Amelia is a new arrival at the zoo in Rome.  One of my favorite memories of Rome was spending a leisurely afternoon its zoo.

And for those who may not have seen some earlier posts I have written about camels specific to Saudi Arabia, you may enjoy these links to earlier posts:

  1. OMG, I love her. The babies are the best. Here in KSA I always worry that they will end up as hashi, in someone’s kebsa.

    A zoo born camel should have no such worries and won’t have people wanting her share of mom’s milk. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Cuteeeeeee! Love the picture…I actually drank camel milk, and it came back up faster than a fox chasing a rabbit. Won’t do that again. 🙂

  3. Amelia is one baby you’d unlikely see in Saudi Arabia being that she is a ‘two-humper’ but she and all baby camels (even adult camels) are just so adorable.
