Camels in Saudi Arabia

I’m not sure if camels groom each other as some animals do, but it sure looks like that’s what’s going on here. The one humped dromedary camels are native to Saudi Arabia. Their earthy coloring ranges from a creamy white to all shades of brown to almost black. These camels are perfectly suited to the Arabian desert climate. They don’t actually store water in their humps, as many people believe. In actuality, the hump is made of fatty tissue which can supply the camel with needed energy when food and water is scarce.
