Camels are ungulate mammals native to dry and desert areas of Asia. There are two species the Bactrian Camel and the Dromedary Camel. Camels are large hoofed animal and one can find them in hot climatic conditions. They are mostly found in regions of middle-east but can also be seen in different parts of world. There are very less camels in wild regions as mostly are in domestic use by humans especially in the desert regions.

They are herbivorous animals who like to eat plants. They have the best ability to store energy from foods and water as fat in hump. They can survive for almost ten months without water.

Both species of camels are ruminants without horns and muzzle. Camels have nostrils forming oblique slits, the upper lip divided and separately movable and extensile.

The Bactrian Camel is distinguished by two humps. It is native to Central Asia, and is an endangered species. The Dromedary has one hump, and is native to Western Asia and Africa. Still very common as a domesticated animal, it too does not survive as a wild animal in its native range.
