There 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.
