The average life expectancy of the camel is around forty years. THe camel is best known for the humps it displays on its back. The hump is actually made up of fatty deposits that just sits there acting as a spot of insulation and a spot of extra fat in case the camel needs it for energy. Today, camels are often used as a source for milk.
Camel’s milk can be considered a luxury in areas where it doesn’t usually come up, but there are plenty of other things that could come from a camel. The camel hair is also sold - often used for yarn to create pouches, bags, etc. for humans. Camel meat can be considered a delicacy as well, in some parts of the world.
