Arabian (dromedary) camel

One Hump or Two? - Arabian (dromedary) camels have a single hump � like the letter �D�. The hump is used to store fat not water. The fat can be converted to energy when needed. The Bactrian camel has two humps � like the letter �B�.

Big Gulp - Camels can drink up to 35 gallons of water in ten minutes! During the hottest time of the year, camels can survive for over a week without water and during cooler weather they can go as long as six months without drinking. To keep moisture in their body, camels don�t sweat much and they can raise their body temperature by as much as eleven degrees during the heat of the day. Learn More!
