How Are Camels Adapted to Living in the Desert?

Answer

Winds blow sand all around, so a camel has long eyelashes to adapt to the desert and it also has nostrils that can open and close. A camel can go a week or more without water, and it can last for several months without food. For more information, visit: http://www.woodlands-junior.kent.sch.uk/Homework/adaptations/camels.htm
