OriginsBefore the law of cleansing of the Moors of Gascogne and the fixing of the dunes of Aquitaine, the Moors were often compared with the African desert, more or less comparable with a colony, a wild, specific ground to all kinds of experiments. Perhaps this would explain the idea to adapt Dromadaire S to the area of the Landes, around the Bassin of Arcachon. Already a first exotic experiment had been developed in 1801: the prefect had tried to establish the culture of the Arachide, which showed a rapid failure.
HistoryAs of 1803, members of the company of agriculture lean seriously on the question of the Chameau X. Great work of cleaning of the forest could benefit from these solids animals. They would be very useful to draw easily from the tons of branches intended to protect young sowings from maritime pines.
Antoine of Savage, great landowner landais, launches out in the adventure in 1827. It then becomes with the mode to invest in the dromedary landais. The of Bordeaux one see ravelling in the middle of their city the first animals of the desert, coldly unloaded Egypt, and surely extremely disorientated. Other forest owners make some come from Algérie. The animals will achieve the work which one awaits from them: to draw from strong loads, to reproduce and even walk the tourists on the dunes, giving to the littoral airs of the Sahara. The experiment will continue forty years.
What becomes these uprooted? Some finish in a circus. Others remain in a thin herd until in 1865, date on which the last animals perish, weakened, dying of cold, corroded by moisture and decimated by tuberculosis. They are then unhappy Buffle S which is conveyed in the Moors but the population does not support this new idea of the agricultural advisers. The animals all are massacred, shown to carry misfortune.
When, recently, one found bones of dromedaries towards Parentis-in-Born, one believed to exhume a dinosaur.
