Author Notes
Camel factoid from Internet search:

Camels make many sounds, including moaning and groaning sounds, high-pitched bleats, loud bellows, and rumbling roars. Mothers and their newborns hum to each other. A friendly way one camel may greet another is by blowing in its face.

On the Internet, there is a famous optical illusion by photographer George Steinmetz about camel shadows. The illusion is that the shadows we 'see' are not the camels but actually their shadows. The photo was taken looking down from an airplane or such.

The Bactrian camel has two humps; the Dromedary has one. To know which is which, take the first letter of each name and place it on its side. Then you will see the B in Bactrian has two bumps/humps; the D in Dromedary has one bump/hump.
