Just out of curiosity does anyone know if there's a special name for a group of camels?

    it should be a "stink", or perhaps "stench", of camels, but that would apply equally well to the case involving only a singleton

    isn't it a dromedary /sp/ for a group of camels??
      Isn't a dromedary a type of Camel? I think "herd" is correct...

    It's a train of camels.

    it a pack of camels... *lights one up*
      The right name for a group of Camels is a Caravan....Not herd, train, packet etc etc......
        The right name for a group of Camels is a Caravan....Not herd, train, packet etc etc......
        Actually, from what I can see from searching the internet (so it must be right :), the most agreed upon and traditional term for a group of camels is a flock, but it seems you can also use train or caravan (presumably you can use train or caravan when the camels are not just roaming about in the wild).

        Cheers!
