Full Answer

Camel calves are born with their eyes open, and they can run only a few hours after being born. Unless forced apart, the camel and her calf will live together for the first few years of the camel's life. Most camel owners begin teaching young camels to kneel and to carry packs when the calves are just over a year old. Camels are well known for their ability to survive for weeks without water or food, an adaptation that makes them perfectly suited for life in the desert.
