About The Dromedary Camel (Camelus dromedarius) is a large even-toed ungulate native to northern Africa and western Asia, also the land of east Africa, Sudan, Ethiopia and Somalia. Dromedary Camels have one hump and are desert dwellers. The Dromedary Camels is also the best-known member of the camel family.

It is often referred to as the 'one-humped camel', 'Arabian camel', or simply as the 'dromedary'.
Dromedary hybrids are called 'Bukhts' and are good draft camels. Originally native to western Asia and East Africa, Dromedary camels were first domesticated in central or southern Arabia some thousands of years ago.

There are currently almost 13 million domesticated Dromedary camels, mostly in the area from Western India via Pakistan through Iran to northern Africa. None survive in the wild in their original range, although the escaped population of Australian feral camels is estimated to number at least 500,000.
Gestation for the female Dromedary camel lasts around 12 months. Usually a single calf is born and nursed for up to 18 months. Females are sexually mature after 3 to 4 years, males after 5 to 6 years. Life span in captivity is typically about 25 - 30 years, with some animals reaching the age of 60.

Adults grow to a length of 10 feet and height of six to seven feet. Weight is usually in the range of 1000-1500 pounds.
Dromedary camels have an ill-deserved reputation for being bad-tempered and obstinate creatures that spit and kick. In reality, they tend to be amiable, patient and intelligent. A camel will show displeasure by stamping its feet and running. At many of the desert located tourist sites in Egypt, mounted police on camels can be seen.

I will put an example of the drommy used as a police 'car' ;)

Hope you like it and have some smiles today!! Happy Monday to you!!! xxJen

De police camels is geen geweldige foto, durfde ook niet zo goed want ze waren zo corrupt als de neten, wilden geld zodat we om de piramide mochten...zo werkt dat;)) Vandaar de big smile ook.... Jij ook lekker slapen straks, Jenxx

Astonishing capture, dearst Jan, and a valuable information..very nice work my friend.!
It is impossible to overstate the importance and the value of a camel to the Bedouin. This "ship of the desert" allowed them to cover long distances, often at high speed, and ensured them their independence from authority for centuries before the arrival of cars, jeeps and airplanes. If they met trouble in one place, they could be a hundred kilometers away in 24 hours. It is not surprising that they called the camel "The gift of God"
also at Jordan my country, we have a desert policeman on a camel..Hope you like the photo..
Have a great weekend my dear friend.
