Many years ago I heard that camels eat fiberglass off military equipment and cars. I was very young then, and believed my leg was pulled. At the first gulf war I heard it again, from a different source, and that made me wonder. Is it true, or is this just a legend? and if it is true, does anybody know why a perfectly balanced, sane camel would wish to do a stupid thing like that? Are there any accounts about other animals who eat fiberglass? If so, did any of them die of it? Why isn't it (I assume) a good idea for humans to try it? thanks in advance Tally
