Camels are a way of life in Bahrain. Several of the busiest highways have special lights and crossing posts (similar to those at train tracks) in which to stop traffic to allow camels herds to cross busy roads. These camels are at the Janabiya camel farm, at the village of Al-Janabiya. There are over 200 camels at this farm.
