In The Spotlight
Camels are one of the oldest breeds that come from prehistoric times. Camels are mammals (this means that camels have babies, they do not lay eggs.) Camels are also called Afro-Asiatic Camelids, and there are just two kinds of camels in the world. People have domesticated (made them pets) camels for about 5,000 years. These “pet” camels are used to carry things, and let the owners ride them. Their hair is thick and good to turn into blankets, and clothing. They are used for riding and to carry things and they are also used for food.
