WINSLOW, Maine (WGME) -- It's an unlikely friendship at a zoo right here in Maine, a horse and a camel.

Caesar lives at the Pony X-Press Zoo in Winslow.

The 5-year-old camel is a main attraction for the traveling zoo, but he also serves another purpose.

Ed Papsis says they've had Dolly on and off for 10 years.

"She's probably the only horse that has a Seeing Eye camel, she unfortunately has gone blind," Papsis said.

Caesar needed company, and Dolly needed a guide.

"We put the horse in there and she just kind of bonded with him and he bonded with her," Papsis said.

Caesar only has eyes for her.

They are a rather unlikely duo, in an unlikely place.
