are two types of camels, firstly the Dromedary or Arabian camel
which has a single hump and the Bactrian camel which has two
humps. Camels live thirty to fifty years and are the best in hot
and dry places, especially North Africa and Asia. The Bactrian
camel has two types of coats the rough one which is found at the
top and the smooth and softer one which is on the inner side.
The fibre is similar to cashmere silk and the camels shed about
seven kilograms of them every year. A camel’s meat is eaten and
its milk is said to be more nutritious than a cow’s milk. The
Bactrian camel lives in cooler places than the Dromedary because
it can’t stand too much heat. A camel is said to store many
litres of water in its body but this is not true even if they
serve this purpose during roundabouts.
