Do blonde camels have more fun?

The people of the Gobi desert call them "white" camels.  They're more blonde -- or very light tan -- but they are distinctive and rare.  It is good luck to encounter one.

The more I see of these bactrian beasts, the more fond of them I grow.  They look like something that might arise as the love child of Dr Seuss and George Lucas.  Especially the babies.

I recall a quote from the West Wing: Camels are horses designed by a committee.
