Can camels swim?


Only some camels can swim. According to The Times of India, experts have confirmed that a unique breed of camels, known as Kharai, can swim up to three kilometers, or nearly two miles, in the sea. They do so while seeking mangroves to feed on.

Kharai camels are found in Kutch, a district of Gujarat, which is a state in western India. These camels are remarkable for their ability to survive in dry ecosystems as well as coastal ones. They have smaller feet than other camels as well as long, thin legs and a rounded back. Kharai camels are able to live in coastal ecosystems due to their tolerance for water with high levels of salt.
