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.
