How do camels adapt to the desert?

Answer

A camel can adapt to a desert in several ways. For instance, a camel can go a week or more without water and can stay for many months without food as well. A camel stores fat in the hump, which is metabolised to energy when there is scarcity of food. In addition, their ears have hairs, which prevent dust from damaging the internal ear organs, and their feet are wide to make it easier for them to walk comfortably on sand. In addition, camels can withstand various temperature fluctuations, which range from normal warm temperatures of 20°C to extreme heat between 34°C to 41.7°C.
