Bactrian Camel

A true desert creature

The two-humped camel lives in central Asia and is classified as critically endangered. The Bactrian camel is well adapted to a harsh life in the desert: The long eyelashes protect its eyes from sand, and it can close its nostrils to reduce evaporation from its body. Its wide feet prevent the camel from sinking down into the sand. The humps do not contain water – they are fat deposits.
