Description:

The dry, arid desert environment of North Africa is home to the dromedary camel. This harsh and unforgiving terrain is known for its exceedingly high temperatures, lack of water, and vast empty expanses of sand, broken only by the occasional stretch of dirt or rocky ground. Camels are well-adapted to the harsh conditions of their desert habitat and prefer it above all others. Camels are no longer found in the wild, being completely domesticated. They are commonly referred to as "the ships of the desert" by the native peoples of North Africa who use them as beasts of burden.

Camels are highly resilient animals, able to go five to seven days with little or no food or water. They can survive eating thorns, dry vegetation, and saltbrush that other mammals avoid. In captivity, they prefer dates, grass, wheat, and oats.

The camel is a semi-social animal, equally at home alone or with small groups of other camels. They prefer their own company and will often become agitated around unfamiliar animals.

Camels have an ill-deserved reputation for being bad-tempered and obstinate creatures that spit and kick. In reality, they tend to be amiable, patient, and intelligent. A camel will show displeasure by stamping its feet and running.
