In a family group the male camel is dominant and directs his family from the rear, with females taking turns leading. They tend to travel walking in single file.
Dromedary camels have only one hump on their backs which can grow up to 80 pounds (around 36 kilos). They can weigh over a thousand pounds and can be as tall as six and a half feet. They can also drink up to 30 gallons of water in 13 minutes.
Dromedary camel’s hump is made of fat and fibrous tissue. They can go for a long time without food and water; they metabolize the fibrous tissue of their humps to provide camels’ energy during scarce times.
