Mammals – Bactrian Camel
Thursday, March 9th, 2023
Bactrian camels have two humps on their backs where they store fat. Their nostrils close to block sand, and their bushy eyebrows and two rows of long eyelashes protect their eyes from blowing sand and ice. Arabian camels, called dromedaries, have only one hump, but both Arabian and Bactrian camels use their stored fat as energy and water when they are far away from food and a freshwater source.
