Watch: Camels dash through the snow in Saudi Arabia

The footage captured in the north of the kingdom proved popular online

Camels and snow are not a combination many would expect, but a video shared to social media from Saudi Arabia is showing our one-humped friends are adaptable.

In the sand dunes near Ash Shuqayq, in the north of Saudi Arabia, Khalid Al Hawawi captured the unusual sight of a herd of camels galloping over a thin layer of snow.

Mr Al Hawawi said he enjoys filming in inclement weather, and is used to rain occurring in the area.

The slow motion footage, including a baby camel, was a hit online. One user commented "what a delightful scene!".
