Close up profile portrait of a thoroughbred Omani camel belonging to Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, taken in the Al Khatam sands near Al Ain. The head and neck of a thoroughbred Omani face towards the left in a profile pose. The camel's mouth is closed and it has a thick patch of hair along the bottom of its throat.
