Camels got its coin as the ships of the dessert.

Why is it so?

There are some good reasons behind it.

More than 3000 years ago camels have been domesticated and in Africa and Asia humans rely upon them to transport get them transported across desert or arid environment to this day.

In animal world it is known that camels are able to carry up to 200 lbs of weight and can travel up to twenty miles per day.

Camels can be as fast as horses yet they can travel for extended periods with no water or food.

That is why camels are well equipped to survive in the desert.

Camels can be well adapted to the landscape of desert because their feet are broad and round and in the snow they work a little bit like a snow shoes so that in the sand they will not sink in.

Camels also have a special membrane over their eyes so that unlike us that cannot stand when sand blown into eyes, camels have their eyes protected by the membranes from the sand.

Furthermore these animals have ability to close their nostrils so the sand will always be kept out of their nose.

The habitats of camels comprise regions in Africa, Asia and in some feral animals in Australia.

Camels were imported to Australia in the 19th century.

Some of those camels are adapted to cold of winter by growing thick with shaggy coats that will shed them in the hot of summer seasons.
