My pal Scarf posted a link to a NY Times story on the remains of a giant camel having been found in the Syrian desert.
The Giant Camel seems to be 100,000 years old and as big as a giraffe. This reminds me of the Australian megafauna I saw at a museum in Brisbane. You know, giant kangaroos and half-ton birds Anyway, our friend the giant camel seems to have been killed by humans. I guess a giant camel would make a lot of camel kebabs (the kind on a stick, of course, since even ancient man would have worked out that everything tastes better on a stick).
