A group of camels is referred to as a caravan, flock, train or herd. The Arabian camel travels up to 100 miles without drinking. It stores 80 pounds of fat in its hump, converting the fat to water when needed.
Every gram of fat in the camel's hump provides one gram of water. Camels rarely sweat and retain most of the water they drink. Camels can go without water for weeks or months. A thirsty camel drinks approximately 30 gallons of water to replenish itself. Camels can close their nostrils to keep sand out, and long bushy eyebrows and eyelashes protect their eyes.
