Celebrating the camel: Keith Bellows on TED.com

Keith Bellows gleefully (and profanely) outlines the engineering marvels of the camel, a vital creature he calls “the SUV of the desert.” Though he couldn’t bring a live camel to TED, he gets his National Geographic camera crew as close as humanly possible to a one-ton beast in full rut. (Recorded February 2002 in Monterey, California. Duration: 16:06.)
