Its body temperature can change with the surrounding environment, no matter how high the outside temperature, how hot the weather, it can self-regulate their body temperature and external balance.Dromedary breeding does not need concentrated feed, desert plants, leaves, branches is its delicious food, and even dry and coarse straw will feel satisfied.Camels endure hunger and thirst-resistant ability, some say because of the camel’s back hump was filled with water can be added at any time, so a few days no water to drink, but also insisted that there would be no danger. In fact, not completely right, in addition to the hump of water but also have a crude fat storage.When the camels are not dietary supplements, they will use the hump in the nutrients and water to sustain life. Desert climate is very dry, surface water scarcity, the air is particularly dry, so long as wells or water, thirsty camel by its own specific features, a few kilometers away you can smell the water and gas, where to find water. A thirsty dromedary, one of the drinking water can reach tens of kilograms, equal to its own weight of 1 / 3. The water is transported through the stomach to the body.The case of water on the road, the one-humped camel can last for 7 days without water, only eat coarse hay. Load 200 kg cargo of camels, just very little grass and water consumption, you can walk in the desert a few weeks. Loss of body fluids in 27% (weight close to 1 / 4) 20% lighter indeed become “skinny”, but they are still amazing perseverance, enduring thirst, tenaciously alive …
However, if they suffer more than the limit, it will lie down and quietly wait for death, no longer any way to make it stand up. In addition, camels little mouth, breathing frequency is low, it can greatly reduce the body water distribution. In the hot day, it have their own functions to regulate body temperature, so little sweat. Dromedary docile temperament, no matter who, as long as it affects the reins, who heard beck and call.However, do not mess with it anger, temper when it came, very stubborn, especially small camels, especially do not want to pack the goods, often in the master roared, Ben jump. Although camels eat the grass, but it is full of treasures. Camel leather for the production of leather products; camel plush is a senior wool textile raw materials; camel milk and cheese are delicious food; the camel’s bones are industrial raw materials and organic fertilizers; dried camel dung or a better life on the desert dwellers of fuel . In short, the camel was no demand for human life, but then human sacrifice greatly.
