-47- / -48- Nakhur / Wakhd


(I forgot to put one up yesterday, so here are two weird yet interrelated ones!)

Nouns. From Persian.

“A camel that will not give milk until its nose is tickled”

“A camel that throws out its feet like an ostrich”


The Persians also have many more words with regards to camels and the way they act, I’m assuming due to their prevalence in Persian culture. That, or they’re just huge fans of artiodactyla (a posh word for even-hoofed creatures).

I wonder if you can get a cow that acts as a nakhur; I’m not entirely sure how that series of actions leads to the conclusion, but then I’m not really animal-savvy.
