CTV's lunchtime weatherman Anwar Knight gets friendly with a camel at the Toronto Zoo. Apparently there are now camel rides to be had, for a modest fee, to help entice families to the zoo for March Break.

Many years ago, when my sons Dieter and Damon were quite young, like 8 and 6, I did just that—took them to the Toronto Zoo during March Break. While passing the camel enclosure, we saw a couple of camels in the distance engaged in, shall we say, some unusual behaviour. One of the boys asked me, innocently, "What are those camels doing, Dad?" Without missing a beat, I replied, "Humping."
