  • Camels can run at up to 65 km/h (40 mph) in short bursts and sustain speeds of up to 40 km/h (25 mph). A camel can close its nostrils between the breaths to keep the sand out.

  • Camels actually have three eyelids! Two of them have lashes, and the third is thin.In sandstrom they shut their eyes, but can see well through their thin eyelids to keep moving.
  • A feature of their nostrils is that a large amount of water vapor in their exhalations is trapped and returned to their body fluids, thereby reducing the amount of water lost through respiration.
  • They can withstand at least 20-25% weight loss due to sweating (most mammals can only withstand about 15% dehydration before cardiac failure results from circulatory disturbance).
