The CamelCamels have lived in some of the most desolate corners of our planet, and not only do they live,they thrive . Camels are able to use this to their advantage as a survival strategy. By living indeserts, mountains, and other arid places Camels are able to avoid predators, and others whowould compete for resources. Camels are only able to do this because of their amazing ability toefficiently use the resources their environments provide. A camel can travel long distances whichallow them to take advantage of the maximum number of resources. They can withstand amassive amount of dehydration which allow them to survive not only between watering holes,but sometimes between seasons. When at a watering hole camels are able to gorge themselvesand rehydrate quickly. For food, camels are omnivorous. They can eat almost anything be itvegetation, meat, or bone,-- salty or sweet, a camels stomach knows no limits. But it is theirtemperament that is truly endeared the camel to man. Docile and sweet under a caring hand,but stubborn and angry if ill treated, the camel both wins your heart and your respect.
