A Face Like a Camel's Arse

Mrs J spotted this simulacra while we were perusing the exhibits in the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh. Not only has this poor camel been stuffed, but it has had its posterior arranged into a vaguely comic face!

I sent this simulacra into Fortean Times for Simulacra Corner, alas I was told that it was “not striking enough for use”.
