There is more to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo than horses, cows, pigs and goats.

There are also exotic animals. For instance, there are camels – all the way from Wisconsin! (Bet you thought we were going to say the Middle East!)

The family that owns them, has a wildlife facility near Madison that has been in business for generations.

The camels are available to ride for $9 at the attraction that is operated by The Camel Towing Company.

The wooly, humped creatures are a crowd pleaser, especially the camel named Goober. He appreciates it when people use his hashtag: #GooberTheCamel
