Have You Seen A Camel Eat Cactus – It's Not For The Faint

Camels bodies are built for harsh desert conditions. Camels have a hard palate at the tops of their mouths and cheeks lined with raised, cone-shaped structures called papillae.

Papillae in camels partially consist of keratin, the same hard material that your fingernails are made of. Papillae protect the cheek and mouth from scratches and injuries.

  2. Did you know camels also live in the north and are well adapted to the snow? They grow long winter coats and the wide feet that work well in the sand are also suited for snow.

  3. I only know two thinks about camels… now three.
    Camels will spit in your eye AND it’s easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to get into heaven. <–<< that second one really depends of what 'rich' means to you. 😉
