Close up profile portrait of a thoroughbred (female) Wahiba camel, taken near Al Qabil, at the southern end of the mountain Jabal Hafit (Jebel Hafeet). The camel faces towards the left (only its head and neck are visible). It is wearing the traditional form of guiding harness, which consists of a chain halter, a neck rope, and a head rope.

Due to the nature of these images, prints will reproduce any signs of age, wear or damage that occurred before they were archived by the Pitt Rivers Museum.
