Kids will love playing with this soft, plush camel as they learn some fun camel facts! Did you know camels can consume up to 30 gallons of water at a time? But not this one, he's stuffed!


Fun and Educational Camel Facts


A camel has two sets of eyelashes that protect its eyes from the blowing sands of the deserts. A camel can allow its body temperature to reach up to 106°F (41°C), which allows it to travel in hot, dry areas without losing great amounts of water. The humps of camels are not used for water-storage; they are areas of fat, which provide food during shortage. They can store up to 100 lbs (45 kg) of food. A camel’s feet are specially padded to endure the hot sand of the desert without blistering.


  • The most prominent difference between the Bactrian and Dromedary camels is their humps. The Bactrian camel has two humps on its back while the Dromedary camel has only one.
  • Another difference between these two species is the length of their hair. Dromedary camels have shorter hair than the Bactrian.

Fun Facts

  • Camels are called “ships of the desert.”
  • A camel can consume up to 30 gallons (114 l) of water at one time.
  • It can close its nostrils to keep out sand.
