Ah, Wednesday. It’s officially that midweek point where the Monday blues are far behind us and the weekend ahead is starting to feel like a not-so-distant dream. Once we get through today, we’ll be more than halfway done with the work week—and it’ll be nothing but smooth sailing into one of our last summer weekends.
In honor of hump day, we’re bringing you a roundup of some of Instagram’s most-followed celebs hanging out with our favorite humpback (and photogenic) creatures. Scroll down to see 9 stars cuddling with camels for the ’gram.
1. Kourtney Kardashian
Kardashian’s trip to Egypt earlier this month included riding camels around the Great Pyramid of Giza, and she even puckered up to one of the creatures after her ride.
2. Zac Efron
Back in April, Efron ditched his shirt and documented his camel-filled day in Dubai on his Instagram story. And we loved every minute of it.
3. Demi Lovato
During her trip to Dubai earlier this year, Lovato and her crew hopped on some camels—and she took full advantage of the photo op, snapping a mid-ride selfie.
4. Shay Mitchell
Mitchell clearly made a camel friend during her visit to Jordan in July, and her caption for this snap says it all: “He was excited for his close up.”
5. Mariah Carey
Back in 2015, Carey shared this cute pic from a camel ride with her twins, Roc and Roe, during a family trip to Israel. And, safe to say, it’s become a classic in the history of celeb-meets-camel shots.
6. Chrissy Teigen
No one embraces a camel cameo more than Chrissy Teigen, who put her modeling skills to good use by striking a dramatic camel-top pose.
7. John Legend
Not to be upstaged by his wife, Legend also shared a snap from his and Teigen’s trip—and we’ve gotta say, he looks like a natural at this whole camel-riding thing.
8. Kaley Cuoco
Cuoco met up with a camel in Australia earlier this month, giving her boyfriend, Karl Cook, a bit of competition for her heart. “As you can tell from this photo, I truly can’t decide who I am more in love with,” the star captioned the love-filled snap.
9. Chelsea Handler
Never one to be outdone, Handler managed to pack it all into this 2015 ’gram: Israeli flag pasties, a camel co-star, and an over-the-top pose. Bravo, Chelsea.
