Facts About Camels

 ( The 5th fact is the most interesting, so read on! )

Fact 1.  A baby camel is called a calf, a female camel is called a cow, and male camel is called a bull.

Fact 2.  It depends on what species of camel, but Arabian (have one hump) camels live in Southwestern Asia, Northern Africa, Australia, Bactrian camels (two humps) Mongolia and China.

Fact 3.  Camels can go 5-6 days without drinking water in the summer and 5-6 months in the winter!  They can go 5-6 days without food when they don’t have water, but if they do have water, 6-7 months without eating anything!

Fact 4. Camels can close their noses to keep dust and sand out, they have 3 eyelids and 2 rows of eyelashes!

Fact 5: Camel milk is the closest related milk to human milk!  If you’re lactose intolerant, you can drink this milk with no problems (Camel milk is crazy weird)!
