ANIMAL FACTS - Camels
Camels generally do not go around spitting at people for no reason. If they do spit, it is usually as a form of defense. If a camel is extremely angry, threatened, annoyed or agitated then yes, it may spit; However it is not saliva that a camel will spit at you. It is, in essence, projectile vomit. The camel has three stomachs and is a cud-chewer, similar to the cow. If a camel spits, it is actually spitting its cud, or stomach contents, at you. Now while that is pretty gross, our camel has never spat, so you’re pretty safe around it!
Whoever would have thought… a camel’s hump actually stores fat, not water as commonly believed.
