A little hump day trivia:

The Bizarre Mating Practices of the Arabian Camel

The famous hump is comprised of fat and fibrous tissue, the former of which is metabolized to provide the camel with energy during times of deprivation. Camels have made other adaptions for their dry environments, as well, including rarely sweating, having extremely concentrated urine and exceptionally dry poo, and kidneys and intestines that are good at helping their bodies retain water.

However, of all their adaptations, the grossest is probably the male dromedary’s proclivity to blow up a portion of his soft palate with air to the point that it protrudes up to a foot out of his mouth – as a sign to the ladies that he is hot to trot.

Scientists don’t really know how the camels puff up the diverticulum, but some think that, while exhaling, the males close off the nostrils, forcing the air into the pharynx and soft palate.

Image

Whatever the case, with large, repugnant sacks hanging out of their mouths, male dromedaries begin the courtship. Using their spit to make a low gurgling sound that results in foaming at the mouth, they also mark their territory by rubbing their necks (where they have poll glands that produce a foul, brown goo) anywhere they can, and even pee on their own tails to attract a lady with their urine’s “female-attracting pheromones“.

A dominant male (male camels become mature at about six years) will collect a harem, with anywhere from 10-20 females, but challenges are many. A fight will typically start with low noises, then proceed to various head movements, then biting at each other’s legs, and finally chomping on the opponent’s head with sharp teeth.

This last often results in injuries to the soft, squishy dulaa, which can be still hanging outside of the mouth. In addition to cuts, ulcers and bruises, bits of food can even become lodged in the dulaa, and each malady can lead to bleeding, as well as inflammation and swelling. Each of these can contribute to either an inability to the withdraw the dulaa back into the mouth, or a dulaa that is completely trapped within it.

When these injuries are severe, brave veterinarians must remove it, although first putting the animal under deep sedation. According to one study (Sobayil), most male camels that had their dulaas removed had no decline in sexual desire after the operation (21 out of 26, with no follow-up information provided on 4 subjects).

SEXY!!!

Does anyone understand or know why my photo Bucket hosted photos would not be view-able (see above posts with images) or how to get in contact with them (PB), I have sent several tickets to the Support Team and received no reply... :?:

It looks like at one point PB decided to start charging to allow individuals to "hotlink" pictures. The original fee was apparently close to $400 and was met with great opposition. In response PB decided to still charge, but to lower the fee to about $25 a year. From what I understand the way things are now is unless you pay the fee you can't link the way you used to. Leaving most already established links broken. Hope you can still get things figured out, if you have photos saved there I'd recommend getting them and saving them somewhere else if you still can.

This article from May of 2018 explains some of this:

Thank you for your response cory, I did pay the initial fee since I have so much stuff about Terri on here as a tribute to her so I wanted to keep the pictures up, I also pay a much lower fee now and re-upped for the year recently (I think July).

It just suddenly went out when i was posting pictures last Wednesday (it seemed like a malfunction well posting), but when I went back in it failed again, then I noticed all my previous posts were gone.

I used there Support email and have asked for help 3 times and have yet to hear back from them and I can find no phone number that I can call...I don't want to lose what I have here, I like to go back and read stuff it is like a time machine...I know I'm pathetic but it feels sometimes like Terri is still here when I read some of that old stuff and look at the pictures...I get the same feeling about Kapt. Kiiirk when old threads with him get bumped up, I miss the kap... :idea:
