Schleich Dromedary Mare Figurine
Camels' bodies are perfect for long desert travel: their broad feet make walking on sand easier, their long eyelashes protect their eyes from sand, and their nostrils close to keep sand out. The hump on their backs is actually a deposit of fat - stored energy for when the next oasis is miles away. Camels can survive without water for really long periods of time and can lose over 40% of their body weight in water. (Most animals can only safely lose 20%.) Even when water is not readily available, camels produce milk that is a staple food to nomadic tribes in the desert. Compared to cow milk, it is richer in both protein and fat. For ages 3 years and up.
