Agog and Le Music are Dromedary camels (Bactrian camels have two humps, Dromedaries have one, and llamas none) that belong to Mohamed, the owner of the campsite at Erg Chigaga where we stayed.
From the time we first saw the camels, we could sense that they were not to be messed with. They kept giving us the ‘stare down’ and made scary sounds like the tauntaun in Star Wars Episode 5: Empire Strikes Back.
Agog, Le Music and Mohamed took us to one of the bigger dunes in the morning and we lepak-ed there for a bit.
Heading back, Sara commented how Agog’s saliva was disgustingly dripping out of its mouth. Agog clearly was not pleased with this and went a few steps closer to Sara, who was riding Le Music. Agog then proceeded to wipe its mouth on her sleeve.
Agog then gave Sara a look to say, “Is this okay with you now?”
