Camel expert Farij bin Fahd Al-Dosari said that camels are categorized into Digg, Jill, and Fahal according to their ages, and this is very important during festivals like the King Abdulaziz Camel Festival, which has attracted the largest number of attendees.
He explained that the Digg category includes several camel ages, like the Mofrada, which is more than 6 months old, the Haqqa, which is 3 years old, and the Jatha’a, which is 4 years old.
Jill, according to Al-Dosari, is a category for 5-year-old camels while Ruba’a camels are 6 years old. Sudus camels are 7 years old, and Shaq camels are the ones that had their first canine tooth.
He added: “The Fahal is the male camel that fertilizes female camels.”
He stressed that a festival’s standards are focused on what is considered more competitive.
“The King Abdulaziz Camel Festival proved capable of improving and adopting what makes the competition tougher between owners, who go above and beyond to win the King Abdulaziz Camel Beauty Contest Award,” he said.
