A family were left stunned after a huge 75st camel left a dent on their car bonnet by sitting on it at a safari park.
Annie Andrews avoided the monkey enclosure over fears the cheeky critters would destroy their motor, but they were shocked when it came under threat from a pair of two-humped camels having a row.
They were visiting Knowsley Safari Park, Merseyside, to celebrate youngest son Callum's first birthday.
Unable to reverse due to a car behind, the family, including Annie, 40, partner Vinnie Hewitt, 39, and eldest son Harry, seven, all screamed as the creatures moved towards them.
The big beast ended up sat on the front of the car leaving £600 worth of damage, including a huge dent, scratches and a broken headlight.
Annie, from Oldham, Greater Manchester, said: "When we reached the camels we saw they were fighting. They came right into the road.
"A car pulled up behind us so we couldn't move. I thought we'd wait for the camels to move on.

"I got the camera out thinking: 'This will be a good memory for the kids'. But these camels got closer and closer and closer.
"We put the car into reverse, so the lights would come on, but the guy behind us didn't see.
"They got closer and closer and then the next minute – crunch.
"And there is a camel on the front of the car.

"I was thinking: 'Oh my god, we've got to get out', but of course you aren't allowed out of your car.
"Nobody was answering the ranger's phone when we called for assistance. We just had to say 'we're just going to have to wait and drive out'.
"Thankfully the camel got up and walked away as if nothing had happened."
They finished the route and pulled into the car park to survey the damage.
Annie added: 'I phoned my dad and said: 'A camel has just fallen on my car'. He thought I was joking.
"The bonnet was completely dented. It broke a headlight. There were scratches across the bonnet."
