Even though they have only one hump, they still have adapted to employ it for great tasks. For instance, they can store more than 31 kg (70 pounds) of fat, which a dromedary can break down into energy and water when needed.
Moreover, unlike most mammals, their body temperature keeps fluctuating throughout the day.
There are no true wild Arabian camels in our world anymore today, as they were domesticated on massive scales during the medieval age for milk, meat, leather, and travel. The lone remaining feral herds of Arabian camels are only found today in the continent of Australia, where they were introduced in the 1840s to assist in the exploration of the continent.
