Anyone with a passion for dromedaries – that’s camels to you and me – may wish to take holidays to Dubai soon in order to see the world’s first cloned example of the species.

Anyone with a passion for dromedaries – that’s camels to you and me – may wish to take holidays to Dubai soon in order to see the world’s first cloned example of the species.

Scientists have said that the six-day-old creature is the result of five years’ work and have called her Injaz, Arabic for achievement.

She was born on April 8th after being implanted into a surrogate mother and is now living at Dubai’s Camel Reproduction Centre.

Lulu Skidmore, scientific director at the centre, said that the development will have benefits for both the camel racing industry and the milk producing sector.

Camels are a valuable commodity in the United Arab Emirates and high profile camel beauty projects are often held in the deserts.

Dolly the sheep was the first ever animal to be cloned and was born in 1996 in the UK. She lived until 2003 when she developed lung disease.
