Dromedary camel
Population: hard to determine. I tried several sources. They barely exist in the wild anymore. 
Status: Nearly 100% domesticated, "extinct" in the wild.

"Dromedary camels are no longer considered wild animals. They are semi-domesticated animals, freely ranging, but under herdsman control. In fact, dromedary camels have been "extinct" from the wild for the past 2000 years. The earliest evidence for dromedary domestication dates to about 4,000 years ago on a small island off the Abu Dhabi coast. Northern Arabian tribes began to use dromedary camels as riding animals around 3,100 years ago (Kohler-Rollefson 1991). The only surviving feral herds of dromedary camels are those found in Australia. Introduced, feral dromedary camels were also found in the southwestern United States until about 1905."

I decided to dedicate this years inktober mostly to endangered, extinct or enslaved animal species. In November I'll sell some of the originals to raise money for local animal shelters.

War auch überrascht, das Dromedar hier zu finden (domestizierte gibt es ja reichlich) - an die wilde Verwandschaft hatte ich gar nicht gedacht...
