There is a camel on a 10 yuan China/Japanese puppet bank note. I couldn't find it in the JNDA--either I missed it or it just isn't there with some of the other military notes/occupied territories. However, there is one on eBay. I'm not a 'note' person so this is all I could come up with.

A: A Bactrian camel appears on the front of a 10 Yuan note from the Meng Chiang Bank, a Japanese puppet bank under nominal Chinese sovereignty. This particular breed is actually native to the steppes of Central Asia.
