|When you think of the desert, the first animal that you might think of is the camel. Thousands of years ago traders tamed camels and began to use them to travel across the desert. Today the people of the Sahara desert still use the camel for milk, meat, wool, shade and, of course, transportation. |
Does your parent ever give you a big hug when you are feeling cold to warm you up? People have warm body temperatures and can get close together to stay warm. An interesting fact about camels is that their body temperature is cooler than the air around them. They huddle together to stay cool!
Camels do not store water in their humps like some people believe. It is really fat inside the hump. When they haven't had food in a long time the hump gets smaller and falls over. When they do get food and rest, the hump returns to normal.
