Only in Australia!
Yes, when driving in Central Australia, it is necessary to watch for wandering camels! Camels were introduced to inland Australia in the mid-late 1800s to provide transport with "camel trains" in remote areas. This continued until the advent of roads and trucks, when many were released - and we now have probably the largest free-roaming camel population in the world ! More detail here.

Great title and picture George. What does the top sign mean? Unfortunately many non-native animals were introduced to Australia.

has replied to Rosalyn Hilborne club
Many thanks, Rosa. The top sign simply indicates that a divided road is joining to a single road. Yes, there are a number of introduced animals we (and particularly our wildlife) really don't need.
