Camels

Camels are common desert animals that were once used, and still often used, to cross deserts with. Because they can go weeks without drinking water, they are easy to take care of. All questions regarding camels are welcome here.

Where to get camel milk powder in Canada?

User Avatar
Camel's milk powder is quite uncommon in Canada. Your best bet would be to look in a Middle Eastern market, or order it online.

Why the RBC of camel is nucleatated?

User Avatar
RBC of all the mammals is anucleated without any exception. RBC of mammals are nucleated only during embryonic stages. It's just that RBC's of camels and llama are oval in shape and anucleated.

What is the difference between a camel and a horse?

User Avatar
A camel has a hump and a horse has a removable hump. Ha ha. Seriously speaking, though, if well treated, a camel is more affectionate, inquisitive, and attention-seeking than horses, but they are less predictable. As far as the difference involved in riding these animals, camels need less food and water than horses do, so you can take them on longer journeys where there aren't as many water sources. Camels are quieter and gentler than horses are. They are less spooky, yet they sometimes buck just for the pure pleasure of it. Camels are better at getting themselves out of precarious situations. Camels can carry more weight than horses. Camels foot falls are quieter on the ground. They do not need to be shod. Camels do not colic the way horses do. A camel seems to have a mind that is more complicated and interesting than a horse's mind. Camels are more barn sour and herd sour than horses are. It's very difficult to get one away from its home or its buddies. They are not as willing to move out as horses are, and they have less agility, and are less responsive to cues. It's very hard to find a well-trained camel. It's also hard to find a good camel trainer. Camels need custom made trailers. It's hard to find a good camel veterenarian. Camels are harder on fences than horses are.

Why are grapefruits so big?

User Avatar
Why are watermelons so big? It is simply the nature of that particular fruit. You might just as well ask: "Why are kumquats so small?". That's the nature of kumquats.

What do camels eat?

User Avatar
Camels eat a wide variety of plants over expansive home ranges. They have leathery mouths and can eat practically any vegetation including thorns, dry vegetation and salt bush that other mammals avoid. Just about all vegetation available in the desert. They also store food in their humps for up to 6 months, as fat. Scientific research has demonstrated that camels can not and do not "turn (hump) fat into water" My camels mainly eat straw/hay/roughage. In the wild they will nibble on small branches/leaves/shrubs . The diet from the zoo and private people owning camels is usually way -WAY- too rich; carrots, fruit etc is too rich for them; use these as nice snacks, but only snacks/rewards. Camels eat mostly grains in Saudi Arabia. In nature, camels will eat dried leaves, bushes, brush, and whatever plant life they can find in the desert. Domesticated camels are generally fed similar feed to that of a horse: grass, wheat, oats, and dates.

How often do camels use the bathroom?

User Avatar
The camel's face above says it all: "Who wants to know and why!" And it may remain his secret. Though I searched many web pages, the only remark I found about their excrement is that camels excrete in small dry pellets to conserve water. It did not say how often camels eliminate waste.

Asked in Camels

What adaptations does a camel have to survive in its environment?

User Avatar
Camels have a number of adaptations which help them survive in their desert environment. The most obvious is that camels have a hump (or two if they are bactrian camels) which stores fat, which metabolises for energy. This enables the camel to go without food and water for a long period of time. The hump does not store water. When they do access water, they can drink up to 46 litres of water in one session. Camels have two rows of long eyelashes to help protect them against the desert sand. They can close their nostrils, also for the purpose of keeping out sand. They also have hair lining the inside of their ears to protect their ears from the sand. Their legs are long and strong, and their feet are split hooves with broad pads which splay out over the desert sand for more stability, preventing them from sinking into the sand. Their thick, leathery knees do not get burnt by the hot sand when they kneel. Camels have thick fur and underwool which acts as insulation against both the hot desert days and the cold nights. Camels' lips are thick and leathery, which enables them to eat prickly desert plants without it hurting their mouths. A camel's internal temperature can fluctuate with the conditions - this is an advantage because it helps the camel conserve water by not sweating as the external temperature increases. Camels absorb water in their blood, and their erythocytes (a type of blood cell) swell to almost 240% than their normal size without bursting. A camel's kidneys can concentrate urine to reduce water loss; in turn their urine will become very syrupy and thick and be extremely salty. The colour of their bodies helps them to blend into their environment.
