A camel is an even-toed ungulate in the genus Camelus, bearing distinctive fatty deposits known as "humps" on its back.

When this tissue is metabolized, it yields more than one gram of water for every gram of fat processed.

This fat metabolization, while releasing energy, causes water to evaporate from the lungs during respiration (as oxygen is required for the metabolic process): overall, there is a net decrease in water.

Secondly, renal corpuscles have a smaller diameter, which reduces surface area for filtration.

These two major anatomical characteristics enable camel to conserve water and limit the volume of urine in extreme desert conditions.

The camels are able to live in difficult conditions without drinking water due to their ability to produce small and pretty dry droppings as well as they use the water to maintain their body’s temperature to fit with the region surrounding them (Breulmann, et al., 2007).

The camel immune system differs from those of other mammals.

The camels' gait and widened feet help them move without sinking into the sand.

Thus medullary part of camel's kidneys occupy twice as much area as a cow's kidney.
