Saudi Arabia, dozens of camels were suspended from participation in a beauty pageant due to botox

(ORDO NEWS) — More than 40 camels have been banned from the annual beauty pageant by Saudi Arabian authorities. The contestant camels used Botox injections and other artificial colors.

The popular Camel Festival of King Abdulaziz of Saudi Arabia, which kicked off earlier this month, invites breeders of the most beautiful camels to compete for $ 92 million in prize money.

Botox injections, facelifts and other cosmetic modifications to make camels more attractive are strictly prohibited at the event. The jury determines the winner by evaluating the shape of the camel’s heads, necks, humps, clothing, and posture.

The King Abdulaziz Camel Festival, often referred to as the Miss Camel Competition, is an annual heritage festival with various competitions held in Rimah near Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

This year, authorities found that dozens of breeders had stretched the lips and noses of camels, used hormones to enlarge their muscles, injected camels with Botox to make them bigger, inflated body parts with rubber bands, and used fillers to relax their faces.

The camel beauty pageant is part of a massive carnival that also includes camel races, sales and other festivities. The extravaganza aims to preserve the role of the camel in the Bedouin tradition and heritage of the kingdom.
