ABSTRACT
Camel, a large mammal of the desert. The camel is a ruminant, or cudchewing animal, and has one or two humps on its back. The Arabian camel has one hump and is native to Africa, Saudi Arabia, and southwestern Asia. It is no longer found wild. The Bactrian camel, which has two humps, is found in Central Asia. Both species have been domesticated for riding and as draft animals. A dromedary is any camel used for racing, but the word usually refers to Arabian racing camels.
