The Gem World is only open limited hours. Currently the camel is out in front of the store.

Just west of the McDonald's. Also just west of Hi Jolly's. The camel is usually in front of the entrance of Gem World, but sometimes they'll move it up to the street.

Camel is on lockdown until October 1...it's just like going to the zoo and seeing a camel behind bars :)
