Today, I went to the camel ranch by Mamshit where our family got to ride in a camel caravan. Our camel was very nice. Her name meant love. She was tall and had a big hump. All the camels at the camel ranch that people ride are girls (because the boy camels are more aggressive). Camels are much gentler than people say they are. We got to ride on the actual spice route that people would have taken thousands of years ago. We all really enjoyed riding the camels and we got to learn a lot about them, too. We learned that camels have one baby at at time. Camels do not have hooves - they have a two-toed foot and footpads. Lastly, some people think that camels carry water in their hump...but this is a myth. The camel's hump is actually made up of fat to help them survive. The guide told us a lot of information!
