Dubai, UAE

A state-ofthe-art new med­i­cal fa­cil­ity has opened in Dubai – the first de­voted ex­clu­sively to camels. Camel rac­ing and camel beauty pageants are a favourite pas­time in Dubai, where the most prized beasts can sell for mil­lions of dol­lars at auc­tion. The hos­pi­tal cost $10.9m to build and can treat up to 20 camels us­ing adapted eques­trian equip­ment. The own­ers of the fa­cil­ity say it will also be used to re­search and de­velop new camel medicines, and un­cover “the se­crets of this strange desert an­i­mal”.
