    Camels are well known for their voracious appetites - but this takes the biscuit (along with the vet who was feeding it to him).

    You'd think the fact that this camel appears to be eating a female vet would be weird enough for this picture.

    But apparently, according to the agency who supplied this image, it shows the animal 'getting ready for a pedicure' in the United Arab Emirates.

    Now - we all know camels, the 'Ships of the Desert' - are an important part of people's lifestyles in the Middle East. But a pedicure?! Really?

    Don't even ask why the vet needs to climb into the camel's mouth to give it a pedicure - last time we checked, pedicures were for humans only.

    This weird picture actually comes from a photo competition to mark the World Veterinary Year, used to highlight the important role vets play in the lives of people and animals across the world.

    It's actually an optical illusion - the vet's head is merely hidden behind the camel's cranium.

    The vet being eaten by a camel came top of the 2,500 global entries, and we can see why.

    It's certainly better than second place (not shown here), entitled 'Gorilla holding hands with vet'. Boring. Give us animal eating human any day of the week.
