    "The camel is without doubt an important animal, especially to we Muslims. It is called Al-Jamal in Arabic. If one thinks of the stories of the early propagation of Islam, the camel plays a major role. The Sahabah of the prophet (SallaLlahu-alayhi-wa-sallam) brought the message of Islam to a large part of today’s Muslim world on the back of camels.

    A desert is a land that is extremely dry, totally devoid of vegetation and water, and almost devoid of rain. To survive in-situ in a desert environment is next to impossible, yet camels for thousands of years have been doing so.

    Allah has created this animal, instantly recognizable with its distinctive hump and long neck and famously referred to as “the ship of the desert”, with lots of wonders in its creation. Do you know the camel completely lives up to its “ship of the desert” appellation because…

    It is at home in the desert as fish is at home in the water. How?

    ~The camel’s endurance is legendary. It can go for a week or more without water and it can last for several months without food.

    ~To conserve the water in their body, camel urine comes out as thick coloured water like a syrup. The Prophet (Sallalahu-alayhi-wa-sallam) once ordered some group of people to drink camel’s urine as treatment, possibly for hydrocephalus(Bukhaari (2855) and Muslim (1671).

    ~ Camels rarely sweat, even when at daytime desert temp of 49 degrees centigrade! In addition they can withstand loosing 25% of their body weight to sweating. Most other animals would die if they lost more than 13% (note that other animals includes human beings).

    ~But when camels eventually found water to drink, a full grown camel can drink 200 litres of water in 3 minutes!

    ~They can do it because they have different red blood cells. It is oval rather than circular in shape. This makes them withstand high osmotic variation (the difference in water content in the fluid surrounding the red blood cells and in the cell itself) without rupturing when drinking large amount of water.

    ~Camels eating greens can derive sufficient water from the green plant to stave off thirst for several days (they won’t have the need to drink again).

    Their body respects the desert, the desert respects their body. How?

    ~The camel’s long legs helps by keeping its body farther from the ground. The desert sand can be as hot as 70°C.

    ~The way they walk and their wide feet help them in moving without sinking into the sand.

    ~They have long eyelashes, bushy eyebrows and ear hairs, together with nostrils that can close to form a barrier against sand.

    ~They have a third eyelid which is transparent. If sand gets into their eye, they will remove it by using their third eyelid to slide it away from their eyeball.

    ~During summer, the hairs on their body becomes lighter in colour so as to reflect sunlight and prevent sunburns.

    ~They are able to withstand changes in body temp that would kill most other animals. Their body temp can range from 34°C at dawn and steadily increases to 40°C by sunset and then cool off at night again.""

    What a beautiful creature!

    It is the biggest domesticated animal. Camels in places like Bay and Jubada Hoose easily reach the 1 ton mark.

    It is probably not even fully domesticated. My uncle can not use his left arm anymore because a camel tore into his shoulder while in musth. Everywhere in Somalia you hear “fulaan geel ayaa gacanta ka naafeyey”

    While Australia "home to the world's largest camel herd" is searching ways to eliminate them all. The government is paying hunters $25 to $50 per head that they kill. They became a menace to the environment.

    Australia, home to the world's largest camel herd.

    The camel caused the enslavement of millions of Sub-Saharan Africans. It facilitated the Trans-Saharan Slave Trade. Before the camel, the Berbers and Arabs couldn't sell Africans en masse.

    white people have dogs, somalis have camels
    :banderas:

    The camel is actually in my opinion the reflection of the somali arrogance, because camels are very hard to domesticate, and can at times be very aggressive, and are a arrogant creature when raising it.
    I experienced this first hand when i was at the outskirts of hargeisa where camels
    were raised, when i in a calm waytried to get close, the youngest one came rushing aggressively towards me, and made me wonder how this aggressive animal was domesticated.
    A lot of people have been killed on roads by camels who aggressively tramble them.
    Arabs are also arrogant, and their ancestors were camel herders too.

    Come

    Every possible alternative to commercialise these stray camels have been attempted without success. The bottom line is $$$$.

    Later, I will post a documentary about a Qatari businessman who spent few years in the Northern territory (Australia) to find ways to commercialise the camels. He left empty handed.
