Interesting Photo of the Day: Camel Selfie

Antikka and his friends spent some time feeding the camel and giving it affection before snapping the selfie. The camel obviously wanted to show its gratitude to the photographer and his friends. Antikka posted the photo late one night only to wake up and find that the camel selfie, or camelfie, had become an Internet success.
