Dromedaries live in the deserts of Africa and Asia. They eat mostly leaves, dry grass and thorny plants. The hump of the mammal isn’t used to store water; it stores fat. If they can’t find any food in the desert they can live off it for weeks. The dromedary from Schleich® Wild Life has eaten well recently and has an upright, well-filled hump. Fun Fact: If a sandstorm comes, the dromedary can close its nostrils so that no sand gets in.
