Camels Banned From Beauty Contest After Getting Facial Fillers


Share this article


Twelve camels have been disqualified from a Saudi beauty contest after getting work done.

They were kicked out of the competition after judges caught a vet giving them Botox injections to improve their pout.

Delicate ears, large lips and a big nose are considered to be key attributes in camel beauty. However, in this competition there are strict rules banning any artificial enhancements in these areas.

Competitors are not allowed to use drugs in the lips, or shave or clip body hair.

The son of one camel breeder has admitted they give their camels Botox to improve its lips, nose and jaw.

He's quoted in The National as saying “It makes the head more inflated so when the camel comes it’s like, ‘Oh, look at how big that head is. It has big lips, a big nose.’”

Up to 30,000 camels compete in the month-long festival, with a top prize fund of more than €4 million.
