Male camels are bred and trained specifically for wrestling and must be of a certain type, known as 'Tulu' Camels.
Camel wrestling is held in four categories, namely Foot, Middle, Under the Head, Head.
A camel can win in any of three ways:
1) Making the other camel retreat
2) Making the other camel scream
3) Making the other camel fall.
This shit is BANNED in parts of Turkey, despite it being very popular. It is considered cruel to most, so you won't be seeing this practice in the U.S.A. anytime soon.
