We're used to less-than-ideal driving conditions in the UAE. Whether it's packed roads due to super sales at the Dubai Mall, or gridlock conditions on Sheikh Zayed Road every time it rains, there's very little that can shock us when it comes to navigating Dubai.

Two camels caused a totally different kind of traffic jam last week, though, and it'll shock even the most jaded motorists.

Captured on camera about 40km outside of Dubai, on the way to Ras Al-Kaimah, a female camel was seen mounting a male camel, and the two began know.

People began honking their horns (and taking photos and videos, of course), but there's really not much you can do to move two massive animals when they're in the middle of it.

The man who filmed the clip that has since gone viral spoke to The Daily Mail about catching the camels in the act: "It's one of the maddest things I've ever seen. I've lived out here for two years but this is definitely not the norm," he said.

"We were driving out of Dubai to go to a stag do and we just spotted them at the side of the road absolutely going for it. Obviously in some of the more rural places here you do see wild animals but this was on another level.

"I know people might have a certain impression of what Arabic countries are like, but this is definitely quite rare, he continued. "It's undoubtedly the best thing I've seen since I moved to the Middle East."
