Camels also have a unique thick leathery patch on their knees and that is because when they kneel down it will protect them from getting their knees burnt from the hot sand. Camels have very strong legs so they are able to carry a lot of weight for a long distance of time and they can travel up to 65km/h in short bursts and can sustain a speed of 40km/h. They have broad, flat, leathery pads at the bottom of their hooves so it creates a snowshoe effect and prevent them from sinking in the sand. Out of the 14 million Camels alive today a big percentage are domesticated. Most living in Ethiopia’s Somalia, the border of Sahara, North Africa, the Middle East, Indian subcontinent and in most deserts.
Egypt had much more of an advantage then Mesopotamia with their geography because this would lead to better development. The reasoning for this first off is because Mesopotamia had very flat land and they were surrounded by things which caused their development to later fall apart. This is a negative effect because later on in Mesopotamia the nomads end up invading them and taking over. Which caused their development to drop as I said before. Also, the Tigris and Euphrates river being very unpredictable with flooding or droughts made living difficult in Mesopotamia.
Zebras eat only plants and grasses. They do not eat meat. Grass is the main part of their diet, but when it is scarce, zebras will eat shrubs, herbs, leaves, and even tree bark. Zebra herds will graze and roam where food is most plentiful, and can spend up to 20 hours a day grazing when food is scarce. Defense: A zebra can defend itself by being capable of running nearly 40 mph.
[ Through this development, the usage of trans-Saharan routes increased, and enabled Eurasian people to contact more often with southern Africa. But because of harsh environment of Saharan desert, this trade was more limited than other routes, and regular trade routes did not develop between 600 B.C. and 600 A.D., and even until the beginnings of the Islamic conversion of West Africa in the 7th and 8th centuries. And difficulty of aggressive and massive movement because of harsh environment would be the cause that there were almost no wars using
Do these people want to threaten forgetting old customs and traditions by advancing to modern day customs and habits? Most of what the “Camel Bookmobile” is about is how the people of Mididima honor their own habits and customs, and anyone that does not abide by them is greatly disrespected or punished. The people have a lot of pride for their ancestors and honor them by keeping tradition. It also defines their culture by having their own unique traditions that they all greatly admire and respect. The literacy that the traveling library brings threatens these traditions and could destroy a perfectly unique society, a society built by the ancestors that worked hard to shape a successful community for their future children.
Giraffes eat a lot too; up to as much as 66 pounds a day. Surprisingly, giraffes are rarely seen drinking because they receive most of their water through the consumption of acacia tree leaves. A giraffe uses its tongue to pluck leaves of branches, among other things. Like humans, giraffes have 32 teeth, except with one difference. In the top row where our teeth are usually located, giraffes have a bony ridge instead.
I believe if I were not Persian, this food would still be my favorite food. The food is plain and simple, but the spices and how to cook them is very important. We have many types of food with meat and without meat. But most traditional meals are cooked with meat and chicken. It is hard for me to choose, but one of my favorite Persian foods is rice and kebab.
Aboriginal Health and Medicine Aboriginal people traditionally were much healthier before the British invasion then they are today. The had open spaces to run and exercise and a much better diet. Also they lived in a harmonious world with no stress. But even though they lived in this world of theirs, they still needed medicines.

Therefore, Leather does not hold dust or pollen, and so allergy sufferers tend to prefer leather furniture over fabric furniture. Leather furniture is not only spotless, but it is also lasts long. For example, my brother uses fabric furniture. He has to buy new furniture within one year.
How Does Life Adapt To The Desert Environment Deserts are extreme environments meaning its takes a lot of skills and abilities to adapt to life in the deserts. In this essay I will be telling you how some animals, plants and humans have managed to adapt to life in the desert. Deserts are difficult environments to live in because of how dry it is (e.g the average rainfall in the Sahara desert is approximately 3 inches a year) and also of how hot it can be during the day as well as how cold it can get during the night. The reason deserts are so dry is mainly because it does not rain, this is because when the equator, the closest part of the earth nearest to the sun, heats up it causes the hot air to rise which in turn makes clouds which eventually condenses into rain over the equator (which is why there is mainly rainforests there). So the clouds loses all its moisture above the equator so there is nothing left by the time it makes it to the desert.
