Camel



Camels are even-toed ungulates within the genus Camelus. They are large mammals that live in dry areas. There are two types of camels, i.e. the one-humped camel (the Arabian camel or Dromedary) and the two-humped camel (the Bactrian camel). The Arabian camels are found in the very hot deserts of North Africa and the Middle East. And the Bactrian camels are found in the rocky deserts and steppes of Asia that get very hot and very cold.
The average life expectancy of a camel is forty to fifty years. A fully-grown adult camel stands 1.85 m at the shoulder and 2.15 m at the hump. The hump rises about thirty inches out of its body. Camels can run up to a speed of 65 km/h in short bursts and sustain speeds of up to 40 km/h. Camels are herbivores. They generally feed upon dates, grass, wheat, and oats. They can live without water for a good long number of days.
