A One Hump Wonder
By Erin Horner
  

1     One day my family and I drove to the desert. When we got there, I had a lot of stuff to carry. First, I put on my sunglasses. Next, I grabbed my bag, a book, a cooler, and a chair. Then, I tried to walk across the sand. It was really hot! The sand burned my feet. It blew into my eyes, too. The long walk made me tired and thirsty. It also made me glad that I am not a camel! I wonder: how do camels manage to walk across the hot sand all the time?
 
2     A dromedary, or Arabian, camel has a body that seems to be made for the desert. These one-humped camels have very long legs. They also have extra thick skin on their knees. This helps to protect them when they lie down in the hot sand.
 
3     Camels also have special defenses to protect their eyes. Camels have two rows of eyelashes. These help to keep hot, blowing sand out. They also have a special eyelid that keeps their eyes safe as well. This third eyelid protects their eyeball but still allows them to see.
