These camels are taking their lumps in Saudi Arabia, which was hit by a blizzard Thursday, according to a report.

The dreary dromedaries – with their humps resembling snowy mountains — were captured on video gazing around their surroundings during the surreal storm.

Meanwhile, residents of Tabuk and the adjoining mountainous region enjoyed the winter wonderland as the popular holiday destination was socked with snow, the Khaleej Times reported.

Residents and tourists, including some who drove from the UAE, flocked to the area to enjoy the weather, which is an annual phenomenon, according to Al Arabiya.

The winter season in the kingdom is called Kashta, or season for camping.

Thursday’s highs in Saudi Arabia were 56 degrees Fahrenheit, with a low of about 36 degrees in the Tabuk area.
