Caption: Dromedary camels. View of four dromedary camels (Camelus dromedarius) standing on sand dunes in a desert. This camel has been extensively used by desert-living people as a beast of burden, and only domesticated or feral dromedaries exist. The feral camels range throughout the desert regions of northern Africa, Arabia and the Middle East, and they have also been introduced into the Australian desert. They are extremely hardy animals, and can go without water and food for several days due to their ability to store fat in a hump on their back. They can also withstand the extremes of temperature encountered in the desert, and are able to carry heavy loads.
