Question: My friend was offered a brideprice of 100 camels for her hand in marriage. Should she be pleased? What's the value of a camel?
Answer: Depends on the camel! An average run-of-the-mill camel in Africa or India can be worth anywhere from $700-$2000. A thoroughbred racing camel in the Middle East can bring a price of $55,000-$2,000,000+. So, to abuse a Monty Python quote, "African camel or Middle Eastern camel?"
