in thread New Perl 6 book -- Yes, Perl 6

The camel is used on the cover for Programming Perl only. Each O'Reilly title uses a different animal.

That they decided to go with a big-headed, horned, hairy beast with its tail between its legs (that's trying to moon us or be sexy) is either a stroke of genius, sublime wit, or temporary insanity :)

I'll wait until the colophon comes out before trying to figure that one out.
