Camel at the Stl Zoo

The Bactrian Camel long eye-lashes and nostrils protect them from blowing sand, they can live without water for a long time, and the fat stored in their humps helps them survive long periods without food. In the spring, Bacrtian camels shed their thick witntercoats, leaving them almost hairless in the summer.

 

Pictures of the zoo placks sure come in helpful. Don't know if I would spend the film on them ... good thing I am digital! Altho I do have to type in the info.
