"Climate change is characterised by rising temperatures, more extreme weather patterns and more areas becoming less suitable for livestock," said Prof Hanotte. "The dromedary will be our better option for livestock production - of meat and milk. It could replace cattle and even sheep and goats that are less well-adapted."
Mmmm, camel curry - yummy!

Serena Williams made herself ill after eating dog food hours before reaching the last eight of the Italian Open. The world number one tried "a spoonful" of food meant for her dog, Chip, before beating fellow American Christina McHale in straight sets in Rome.

"I thought 'what the heck, I'm gonna try a piece, it looks good'," she said.
