Have You Seen A Camel Eat Cactus — Reality Decoded


The camel products, especially milk is special because of the plants the camel consume as well as the unique genetics of this incredible creature of nature.

Camels bodies are built for harsh desert conditions. Camels have a hard palate at the tops of their mouths and cheeks lined with raised, cone-shaped structures called papillae. Papillae in camels partially consist of keratin, the same hard material that your fingernails are made of. Papillae protect the cheek and mouth from scratches and injuries.
