  2. 2. <ul><li>The camel is a large, strong desert animal. Camels can travel great distances across hot, dry deserts with little food or water. They walk easily on soft sand where trucks would get stuck, and carry people and heavy loads to places that have no roads. Camels also serve the people of the desert in many other ways. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>A female camel carries a single young, called a calf, inside her body for about 13 months before giving birth. The calf's eyes are open at birth, and a thick, woolly coat covers its body. The calf can run when it is only a few hours old, and it calls to its mother with a soft &quot;baa&quot; somewhat like that of a lamb. The young camel and its mother live together for several years unless they are forcibly kept apart. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>The birth weight of calf is between 30-40 kg. Weaning weight at 1 year is about 150-180 kg, and mature weight is 500-600 kg. on average, reached at 6-7 years. </li></ul><ul><li>A fully-grown camel can weigh up to 700kg/1542lbs. </li></ul>
