A new animal experience may soon be coming to Disney's Animal Kingdom.

Disney has recently brought in a group of Arabian camels to take part in a new animal experience at the park.

The experience is planned to be similar to the recently introduced Winged Encounter show, where guests get an close up view of the animals inside the park.

Arabian camels are around 6ft tall, typically weight 1000lbs, and have a single hump. If you are in the park over the next few weeks, keep a look out around the Tree of Life and Africa for possible test shows.

Disney has not yet announced the new experience, so until then, it should be treated as speculation.

Pretty sure it already started, it's possible it already ended as well.

^I believe it to be an "animal chat or show" with an equity performer.

So eloquently put by Joe! I for one would love to know exactly what the "Camel thing" is?

So Joe was at DAK today... I wonder if they turned the Yeti on for him.

Joe approves. That's all you need.

So the camels were actually out? From the looks of it in the picture, I can vaguely place them in the newly expanded area in front of Tree of Life.

Very cool.

I'll have to stop over there in the coming days to check it out. Anyone know what times they are bringing them out?

Apparently they were testing out the camels today.

Camels could also work as an exhibit between Africa and Pandora.
