DUBAI: Cloning is in high demand in the competitive world of camel beauty contests, leaving scientists at a Dubai clinic functioning round the clock to produce carbon-copy monsters.

“We have so much need for cloning camels that we are unable to maintain,” the centre’s clinical director Nisar Wani stated.
Elegance pageants are not the only driver of the camel cloning sector. Several consumers want to reproduce racing camels, or pets that create huge amounts of milk.
However “beauty queens” are one of the most preferred order. Gulf clients will pay in between 200,000 as well as 400,000 dirhams ($54,500-$109,000) to replicate a dromedary.
The camels are paraded at messy racetracks around the area and scrutinised by courts, with occasional discoveries of Botox and aesthetic fillers including a flavor of detraction to the high-stakes contests.
