Camel races in Shahaniya, Qatar. Racing on a six kilometer track, these camels can really move. I clocked them doing 50 KPH at one point! Camels are a little different from other four legged creatures, such as horses or deer, in that camels walk and trot with both legs on each side working in unison, rather than opposing legs. In other words, when a camel walks, both left legs move forward, then both right legs move forward, and so on. With most quadrapeds, the left hind leg and right fore leg move together, and the right hind leg and left fore leg move together. Watch toward the end of the video where the camels are just walking or trotting. This makes for an extremely rocky ride on camels if you happen to be in the saddle. Very uncomfortable, but these animals just keep on going, like the energizer bunnie!
