We tend to think of beauty contests (or beauty pageants) as competitions which decide the physical beauty of women.

However, according to a report on Reuters, a tribe in Saudi Arabia is having a contest to find the most beautiful camel.

And how will judges decide the winner of Miss Camel?

“The nose should be long and droop down, that’s more beautiful,” Sultan al-Qahtani, one of the organizers of the event, said.

“The ears should stand back, and the neck should be long. The hump should be high, but slightly to the back.”
