I always said that in 100 years there'd be camels on SZR with the tip of The Burj sticking out of a sand dune - great pics them

I noticed that there was mention of Hyenas at a vacant housing development. Well, they're there already, aren't they?

So all the 'aritist' did was remove the people and cars and stick some animals in. Thats hardly any effort , wheres all the dust on the building and sand dunes/islands/patches on the roads.

And where are these rhinos and zebras supposed to have come from?

It's very lazy as the desert should be reclaiming the city, but I guess that would entail rather more time on photoshop.
