Fun facts about Camels!🐪
🐪 Camels are social animals who roam the deserts in search of food and water with up to 30 other individuals.
🐫 With the exception of rutting males competing for females, camels are very peaceful animals who rarely exhibit aggression.
🐪 Camels have 3 sets of eyelids and 2 rows of eyelashes to help protect them from the sand.
🐫 The amount of water a camel drinks on a day-to-day basis can vary greatly, as they drink to replace only the fluid they’ve lost. A thirsty camel can drink up to 135 liters in one sitting!
🐪 There's no water in that famous hump! It's all fat, used for energy when food isn't available

Cool!🐫🐪 Thanks for reading💛

Have a little too much salt this past Thanksgiving? It's too bad you're not a camel! Why?

They require a very high sodium diet and the benefit of this is twofold:

1. It allows them to eat very salty desert shrubs -- plants that are inedible to other animals and are therefore readily available for the camel's consumption.
2. All that sodium in their diet aids in their ability to retain water for long periods of time, allowing them to survive harsh conditions.
A marvel of evolutionary engineering, camels are built for survival!
Happy humpday, y'all. Mother Nature got me like 😍

Craving cochlea-related information? Super stoked on evolution? Well, it's Wednesday and that means it's #Humpday and we're here with our latest #camelfact for your perusing pleasure. Check out the link in bio (and click on today's camelfact tile!) to get some brief-but-fascinating background regarding the hearing structure of ancient whales and how that relates to today's well-known and loved camels. .

Camel facts! 🐪🐪There are a lot of adaptations the camel has made to survive in desert environments. Their long eyelashes and ear hair protect them from blowing sand, and their nostrils close for the same reason! Their humps are actually fat stores so they can metabolize it for energy when needed. During a normal day on the desert, a camels body can fluctuate between 93°F and 107°F as to prevent sweating and retain more water! 📸: @l_trigz

Watching these camels walk along the beach we decided to look up some facts about them. Who knew they were so interesting? 🐪🐫🐪🐫🐪🐫
Did you know....
•Camels can travel up to 161 km in the hot desert without water. But it's a myth that a camel's hump is filled with water. It is actually filled with fat that can be used for energy and water when needed. •Camels can close their nostrils to keep out sand. They also have two sets of eyelashes to protect their eyes! •Camels are fast! They can run up to 64 kilometers per hour.
Though they are anything but graceful. They use the legs on the same side of their body at the same time.
•Having a camel means all of your needs will be met. You can make clothes with the hair, make shoes with the hide, drink the milk, and fuel a fire with the dung.

Camel hair coat? Count me in! Happy #humpday y'all! We hope you enjoyed our event this past weekend (RVA 50 Mile Fest) celebrating all things Richmond sustainability. In light of that, we're sticking with the sustainability theme and bringing you a cooooool #camelfact celebrating the sustainability and humane harvesting of camel hair! It's a fiber that makes one HECK of a good coat, or jacket, or hat, or vest, or blazer, or gloves, or socks; or any piece of apparel, really. Why? Because of one of the many aspects of the camel's physiology that allows it to withstand extreme heat OR cold: in this case, the hollow center of the camel's hair that acts as an insinuative vacuum. Far out!

Camels are back! This time because of their endurance running skills as an animal marathoner. And they are pretty good - Camels can run at 25 mph (40 kph) for long periods. If their owner is in a hurry, they even can kick their speed up to 40 mph (67 kph) for shorter periods of time. But as everyone knows a key part of long distance running is staying hydrated and on top of your nutrition, and Camels have mastered that. Camels famously store fat in their humps that allow them survive with minimal food or water. When Camels use their stored fat, their hump will diminish. When they eat and drink again the hump will refill with fat. In addition, camels have oval-shaped red blood cells that help continue blood flow during times when water is scarce. Additionally, they drop their body temperature in the morning, which prolongs their ability to run in the hot sunlight. An average camel would finish a marathon in just over an hour.

Happy #humpday, folks! While today's story is a bit sobering, as regards the effects of climate change, it's also a good reminder to make positive and lasting changes to your lifestyle to benefit both the climate *and* people as far away as Kenya. .

Neat Camel Facts!
- Contrary to popular misconception, camels do not store water in their humps. The humps are actually reservoirs for fatty tissue. Concentrating fat in their humps minimises insulation throughout the rest of the body, thus allowing camels to survive in such extreme hot regions.
- There are over 160 words for ‘camel’ in the Arabic language.
- The shape of their nostrils allows them to retain water vapor and return it to the body as fluid.
- They can lose 25% of their body fluids without getting dehydrated. Most mammals can only lose 15%.

Having camels and cattle together benefits our farm for a number of reasons. Camels can eat shrubs and trees that cattle can't. Their gut enzyme is beneficial for improving health of other animals sharing a water troughs and despite the rumours, they are quite loving and gentle.

I ❤️ camels

Cual turista recién llegada, yo no dejo de emocionarme cada vez que veo un camello en la calle y me alegran el día.
Les dejo algunos datos curiosos:
- Tienen una sola joroba y el nombre correcto es Dromedario (o camello árabe)
- Se los comen. Hay restaurantes que venden hamburguesas de camello 😭
- La leche de camella es deliciosa (dije camellA!)
- Son súper rápidos. Las carreras de camello, así como las de caballos y galgos, son muy famosas. Alcanzan hasta 65kmph. - Prohibieron el uso de jinetes niños y los sustituyeron por pequeños robots (es el futuro)
- Cualquier camello que veas en la calle le pertenece a alguien, están registrados y le ponen mecates en las patas para que no puedan correr y no se vayan muy lejos 🙁
- Pueden ser bastante malhumorados y muerden. - Si tienes dónde guardarlo, puedes comprarte tu propio camello (desde 3.000 a 300.000 dólares)
- He intentado preguntar cuántos camellos valgo, pero aparentemente ya no se estila 😂

Camels are the Kings of food storage on the move, thanks to their famous humps. Originally these were thought to be reservoirs of water. Although the hump’s function is to hydrate the animal in periods of intense heat and drought, it actually consists of fatty tissue. When the fat metabolises, it produces water at a rate of 1 millilitre per gram of fat. The camel also has some other smart storage methods. It’s capable of drinking hundreds of litres of water in minutes, and its kidneys are perfectly adapted to recycle “waste” water, leaving it with thick, treacly urine and bone-dry faeces. Also, every time it exhales, water vapour is retained in the nostrils and re-absorbed by the body. Super efficient!

While walking along Canada Place there are plaque with fun facts and history about BC. I learned that they once imported camels to freight goods up the Cariboo trail. The project was abandoned and apparently camels could be seen in the BC forests for decades after. .
