ANYBODY lose their pet camel last week?

Well, we can tell you where it is now.

Pine Mountain couple Ashalee Pearl and Roudi Blunsdon came across the lost dromedary last Friday afternoon.

"Roudi and I were sitting out the front of our house when we noticed the camel standing at the end of our driveway," Ms Pearl said.

"The camel had left evidence of its presence the night before but that was the first time we had seen it in person."

The 18-year-old said the camel had a friendly disposition and wasn't afraid of human contact.

The camel has since been transported to the Ipswich City Council Pound and Animal Management Centre.

If unclaimed, Serendipity Farm owner and founder Abbie Veivers has offered to take in the animal at her animal centre in Gatton.

"I have written to council on behalf of the centre to express our interest in taking care of the camel," Ms Veivers said.

"I hope they find its family.

"But failing that we would love to have it here to be friends with our other resident camel, Humphrey."

If anybody can solve the mystery of the lost camel, phone the council on 3810 6666.
