This photo reminds me of a Shafiq-ur-Rehman joke. To count animals, a student first counts their legs and then divide the number by 4. One can use the same formula here to find out how many camels are shown.

    Very nice picture.

    Had me confused for a minute until I actually did the leg-count.

    I see one genetically modified camel, with 2 heads and 8 legs :-)

    Nice pic.

    I think this is a 2010 GLS 5000 model Camel with a V-12 engine.

    Really great picture. Not just for the symetry of the legs but overall too. Brought back so many nice memories.

    Some comments posted on the ATP Facebook Page:

    - “Legs=8,
    Each Camel legs=4

    - “its camel 2.0….marvel of modern day bio-engineering with ability to go in either direction with ease
    With 8 full legs = better stability during “sand storms”..more camel power…Please see the upcoming commercials showcasing comfy and less bumpy rides…
    reserve yours today….they are going out fast (with 8 legs can move fast too)
    Disclaimer: comes standard with one baba to maneuver but second guiding baba is an upgrade at 50% off..”

    - “3, one behind the camera to take the snap:>”

    It’s a nice optical illusion because of the way the camels are similarly decorated. great picture!
