Camel Wrestling

Camel wrestling is a sport in which two male Tülu camels wrestle in response to a female camel in heat being led before them. It is most common in the Aegean region of Turkey, but is also found in the Marmara and Mediterranean regions of that country. There are an estimated 1,200 camel wrestlers (or Tulu) in Turkey, bred specially for the competitions.

Held in an ancient stadium at Ephesus, near the town of Selçuk, the camel wrestling championships have drawn thousands of spectators annually. The festival usually highlights wrestling of 120 camels, but in 2001 only 96 were involved.  Text Source: Wikipedia
