Old Wives Tale: The Camel

I have just learned that the camel does NOT carry water in it's hump.  HUH!  The camel, however, can drink up to 30 gallons of water at one time.    

Whenever I see camels, I immediately think of the Taun-Taun from Star Wars.  While their terrain and climates are different, they really are similar looking creatures.  I thought they only smelled bad.....on the outside.

Camels are surely the most incredible creatures that can store such huge amount of water. That is the only reason still they are used for riding purpose in the desert areas.
