A group of young Mongolian brothers tries to tie a camel for seasonal shearing. His family has many camels, they use them to transport tourists and obtain wool. During the summer in the Gobi desert, Bactrian camels should get their hair trim, not only because of the high temperature but, also because their wool is very popular in trading. The Bactrian camel is originally from the great Gobi desert, one of the largest in the world, where its lowest temperatures can reach -43 C and in summer +55 C (in the sun), these camels are able to withstand these extreme thermal variations.
