Happy Humpday, friends! Have you ever experienced a day SO windy that dirt, dust or debris FLIES into your nostrils, against your will? Well… Think on that while we drop this latest and greatest camel-fact on ya:
Camels nostrils’ are SO strong that they are able to open and close their nostrils at WILL.
According to “The Camel Rhinarium: A Study Revealing the Presence of the Nasal Plane in Dromedary Camel ,” camels have developed these muscles over time to not only keep sand OUT but to keep water vapor IN. All in the interest of survival! If these animals can make it through such harsh conditions we’re certain you can make it through the rest of your week. You’re halfway there!
