Turkish Camel Wrestling

From the deepest wilds of Turkey, it's camel wrestling!

"Camel wrestling is a sport in which two male Tülu camels wrestle in response to a female camel in heat being led before them. It is most common in the Aegean region of Turkey, but is also found in the Marmara and Mediterranean regions of that country. There are an estimated 1200 camel wrestlers (or Tulu) in Turkey, bred specially for the competitions."

Did you know that camels are retromingent, meaning that they piss backwards?
