Happy Humpday! October 11, 2017

Happy humpday, folks! Do you own any pets and, at times, do you find yourself singing to them? Well you’re certainly not the only one! As a matter of fact, the Bedouin people have been known to sing to their camels to keep them moving, keep them calm, even to keep them drinking water until they’re full!

According to nabataea.net,

“A thirsty camel can drink up to eighty liters of water in one session, and can drink up to twenty liters in one minute. The Bedouin often sing or chant while the camels drink, as they believe it helps them drink to their full.”

Wow! So it’s important to make sure these camels drink as much as they can before moving on, who knows when their next water break will be?

From National Geographic,

“Well adapted to harsh climates, camels are famous for their ability to travel as many as 100 miles (161 kilometers) without water. They retain their body moisture efficiently, but they do not function without water. In fact, a thirsty camel can drink as many as 30 gallons (135 liters) of water in about 13 minutes.”
