What Are The Features Of Camels?
Camels have a hump or two on their back. The hump is called the breast. The camel has no knees. The camel’s feet are very tiny in comparison to its body size. It has one long toe on each foot and four toes on each leg. It has a long neck and nose, and a short tail. Its eyes are large, round, and bulging out of its head.
A camel can live up to 30 years old (some can live up to 40 years old), having the longest life span of any mammal in the world (being surpassed only by elephants). A camel’s lifespan is dependent upon its health, diet, age, and other factors such as climate conditions. In the wild camels usually live from 20–30 years but can be more than 50 years old in captivity if well cared for properly.
Camels are found throughout Asia, Africa, and Australia but are absent from South America. They are one of the few species of the camel family to inhabit desert areas, where they graze on grasses and other plants. They can drink at any time of the day or night, but prefer to drink at night when it is cooler. Camels can go without water for up to ten days even in extremely hot weather.
Camels are herbivores that eat a wide variety of plants and shrubs; they have a very varied diet due to their ability to eat several types of food at once. Camels have a digestive system like humans, so they must chew their food before swallowing it in order for it to be digested properly, which is why camels eat slowly and deliberately.
Camels are usually solitary animals that live alone except during mating season when males may gather together in groups called bands (groups) of 3–20 individuals; females form small groups called herds composed solely of females and their young. Male herds can be large, with up to 80 members, but they are usually small due to the competition for females among males.
Camels communicate by touching each other and making loud trumpeting sounds with their long, yellow-brown nose and throat pouch. They also have a “hippopotamus” call that is made with the mouth and nose, as well as the grunting of a camel’s stomach filled with water, which is called “bubbling”. The sound of a young camel’s bell is called a “roar”, which it uses to communicate between its mother and her herdmates during nursing; these young camels are led by their mothers until they are able to fend for themselves.
