Camel Poem

I don't store water,
In my hump,
It’s really just a fatty lump,
No water's stored,
In my hump,
That lumpy bump,
No water pump...
bactrian camel- two humps(2 humps)
Or Dromedary,
(1 hump)dromedary camel- one hump
I’m a camel,
I can carry,
Things that really,
Weigh a lot,
Through the desert,
When it’s hot…
I can live,
Without much food,
Lack of water?
Still good mood!
camel smiling
I’m a special,
Type of mammal,
The desert’s ship,
Just call me 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.
