A camel's stomach has three chambers. One of them is capable of holding up to a gallon of water. Camels are cud chewers.
These animals have a reputation for having a bad disposition and have been known to bite and spit when annoyed.
Camels mate throughout the year, having no particular breeding season. The gestation period is from 315 to 389 days. The Bactrian Camel ( (Camelus bactrianus) is from Asia. It measures 7 feet tall at its hump. The Dromedary or Arabian camel (Camelus Dromedarius) lives in the deserts of Arabia.
Camels can live on very coarse and sparse vegetation and feed on thorny plants that other animals refuse. When there is plenty of food, they store the extra fat in their humps. Camels have been known to go without water for 17 days and survive.
