The Camel (also known as the Dromedary Camel, the Arabian Camel, and the One-Humped Camel) is a large hoofed animal that is most commonly found in the hot deserts of Northern Africa and the Middle East.


Because of the camel’s resilience and adaptation to some of the harshest environments in the entire world, man domesticated camels thousands of years ago to be used as pack animals and for mounts. One could argue that without the camel, some civilizations and peoples would not have been able to thrive in arid locations.



Beyond helping with transportation, camels have historically been a resource for their meat and milk. Camels also provide two types of wool to be harvested: the outer, coarse layer and the inner, softer layer. Both are desirable for different purposes, and the camel sheds its wool naturally.
