A lumpy, bumpy, grumpy camel,
There are two camel species- the dromedary camel has one hump and the bactrian camel has two humps.
Although some people believe that camels hold water in their humps, the humps are actually made up of fatty tissue.
Because of physical adaptations, camels are able to go for long periods without water and food.
