What do camels eat?

What do camels eatThere are two extant species of camels: the one-humped Arabian (which includes the Dromedary breed) and the two-humped Bactrian.

Bactrians typically graze and browse on shrubs, leaves and grasses. Arabians target similar fare, apparently preferring shrubs and forbs; they'll tackle thorn bushes, saltbush and other plants of limited palatability.



Camels description:

A camel is an even-toed ungulate within the genus Camelus, bearing distinctive fatty deposits, known as humps, on its back. There are two species of camels: the dromedary or Arabian camel has a single hump, and the Bactrian camel has two humps. Dromedaries are native to the dry desert areas of West Asia, and Bactrian camels are native to Central and East Asia. Both species are domesticated; they provide milk and meat, and are beasts of burden.
