Camels are used as draft and saddle animals in desert regions of Africa, Arabia, and Asia. Adaptations to windblown deserts include double rows of Eyelashes, the ability to close the nostrils, and wide-spreading soft feet. They also can tolerate dehydration and high body temperatures. They are thus able to go several days without drinking water.For all these reasons camels live in the desert.

They were actually brought overseas because there were getting too many of them in Another Country. (I forget which one. (Blush)
because they like it
