One hump or two?  The single hump is a camel from the Middle East or upper Africa. The camel with two humps is native to Asia.   Camels are suited to the desert because their eyes have three eyelids and two rows of eyelashes to keep sand from entering their eyes.  They are also able to close their nostrils and lips to keep out the dust. I wish I had that kind of super-power! The camel is a symbol of patience, tolerance and strength.  Camels are usually very peaceful.  Just don’t get a camel mad – they can “spit” a stinky green fluid from their stomach all over you – it is as bad as a skunk smell!   Purrs, Gulliver
