Camels Explanation

How the camel has adapted to surviving in the desert
Have you ever thought about how or why Camels live in the Desserts. Camels can live in the Desserts because they are adapted to living in a hot and dry place. A Camel is a mammal with long legs, thick lips, and a humped back. Adapt is to make changes for a purpose to survive and live in hot & dry place for a camel
 
Pads
Camels have pads on their feet and chest to help them walk and lay on the hot sand, They also have webbed feet to walk on the sand much easier.

Eyelashes
Camels have long thick eyelashes to protect them from getting sand or dust getting into their eyes. They have double layers to secure their eyes even more to keep them safe.

Lips
Camels have thick lips to eat twigs, bones and thorns. This lets them eat cactus for water without feeling any pain.


Even though camels aren’t the fastest animal they can help us get through the desert and carry your essentials.


Did you know? Camels can run up to 40 mph



Today for writing we have been learning about how to write an explanation. We decided to write an explanation about how the camel has adapted to their environment. I have learnt an interesting fact about camels, I found out that camels can run up to 40 mph so if your in a rush and stuck in the dessert don't look further and look for a camel.

I have chose sky walk instead of bungy jump because I will never do that in my life. It is also really scary for because heights is my worst fear. I decided to do sky walk because that will be the only thing to conquer my fear. This event is more safer and cheaper then sky tower.
