You can't imagine how long I've tried to get a picture of a camel yawning, when going to zoos.  The worst was when I finally saw one, but the camel was facing away from me and all I could see was the top of his muzzle spreading wide apart from the bottom.

However,  I was finally able to get a picture of a yawn.  I was intending to include it in my next update, but seeing as I haven't found the time to actually do that update, I'll upload them here for you now.  I wish they were more close up, but it's the best I have.

Enjoy.

*smiles*  Thanks.  I keep trying for more camel yawns, but they're difficult to get.  I've waited by camel enclosures at the zoo for 30 minutes several times and never saw a single yawn.  They are definitely not like big cats.  *laughs*

The other problem of course, is that I've seen even better yawns, but only when the camel was facing away from the camera.  Another problem with zoos is that you're generally limited on what angles you can see the animals from, and often miss good yawn shots because of this.  But, I keep trying.
