How is camel adapted to survive in a desert?

Asked by Topperlearning User 16th April 2014, 10:30 AM
Answered by Expert

Camel is adapted to the desert conditions because of the following:

i. Its limbs contain large pads which help it to move on hot and slippery sand.

ii. The hump of the camel is a reservoir of food in the form of fat.

iii. It drinks a large quantity of water and stores it in water-cells, muscles and connective tissues.

iv. It can live without drinking water for about two weeks. It excretes very littile water in the form of urine.

v. It can adjust its internal temperature according to the surrounding air. It sweats less in the bright sun to maintain its body temperature.
