There are 2 kinds of camels in the world, Dromedary Camels and Bactrian Camels.
Dromedary camels have 1 hump and bactrian camels have 2 humps. You will only find dromedary camels in Morocco.
The dromedary camel, also known as the Arabian camel, exists today only as a domesticated animal. About 90 percent of the world’s camels are dromedaries. Domesticated = tame and kept as a pet or on a farm.
- Camels have a reputation for spitting but they don’t actually spit, it would be a waste of water. They are actually throwing up
on you. GROSS!!
- A camel’s poop is so dry you can set it on fire. Don’t try that at home.
- Baby camels are born without a hump. They won’t get one until they start eating solid food.
- Camels can close their nostrils to keep sand out of their noses. Kind of like nose doors.
- Camels can go a week or more without water, and they can last for way longer without food.
