Camels don't directly store water in their humps. They're humps are actually reservoirs of fatty tissue. When the tissue is metabolised, it produces more than 1 gram of water for every gram of fat processed. This fat metabolism, while releasing energy, causes water to evaporate from the lungs during respiration. The dromedary camel can drink as little as once every 10 days, even under very hot conditions, and can lose up to 30% of its body mass due to dehydration.
These wooden Camel figures capture these unique and fascinating creatures perfectly and have been lovingly handmade in Russia.
They are a joy to touch and hold and have varying texture which assists in developing motor skills and allows the toy to become a guide to the world of wonder and adventure.
Playing with wooden animal figures instills a love of nature and animals while developing creativity and imagination. They are the perfect educational tool for young children and are ideal for use in Montessori and Waldorf play settings.
