Design a Camel
Contest Directions: Camels are in big trouble, at least in Australia, where government plans mass killing of wild havoc-wreaking camels, by marksmen in helicopters. Camels were first introduced to Australia in 1840s to help explorers travel through the Australian desert. According to the government, camels were useful back in the old days, but now they cause nothing but trouble - they compete with sheep and cattle for food, they trample vegetation, they destroy settlements in search of water, scaring residents as they tear apart bathrooms and rip up water pipes. Camel population in Australia doubles every 9 years.
The old saying says that "a camel is a horse designed by a committee". Design your own camel by merging it with other animals (humans also allowed).

This contest is fueled by the following news: Camels are distinguished by vengefulness. They are very cunning and unforgiving. In Saudi Arabia, for instance, cases were recorded when camels took revenge against the person who offended the member of their herd. A camel's nature is quite harmful and if it is forced to do something against the will, then it can become furious, biting, kicking and roaring. In ancient times, camels participated in battles. They were used in ancient and mediaeval armies for transporting goods and riders as well as in battles. In such cases, two soldiers rode the animal: one - cameleer and the second – the archer. Two-humped camels or Bactrian (Latin name: Camelus bactianus) – are a heavy-sized representative of the Camelidae family, which along with the single-humped camel (dromerdary camel), belongs to the genus Camelus. Apart from the presence of two humps and the huge size and weight, two-humped camel are distinguished from the single-humped camel by a much thicker wool coat. Both the camels are a closely related species, forming viable fetus cross-breeds. Bactrian camels are well adapted to live in extreme continental dry climatic conditions with hot and dry summers and very frosty and snowy winters. The anatomical and physiological features, characteristic to camels, allow them to stay unusually long periods without water and be content with rough and less nutritional food. Bactrian camels survive extremely harsh winters relatively easily thanks to their exclusive thick wool coat. However, two-humped camel do not survive humidity at all and is found only in regions with an extremely dry climate. Since ancient times, the Bactrian camel has been an important domestic animal in many parts of Asia. Domesticated Bactrian camel can be predominantly found in steppes and semi-desert regions of the eastern part of Central and Central Asia, Mongolia and neighboring territories of Russia and China; the world population of Bactrian camels is more than 2 million. A large number of domesticated camel breeds are raised. In farms, Bactrian camels are used as pack and draft animals as well as a source of milk, meat and valuable wool. Apart from this, Bactrian camels are popular circus animals. Large numbers of Bactrian camels are kept in zoo parks. When compared to single-humped camels, two-humped camels are found in the wild form in very small numbers. The wild camel (word "Bactrian" originated from Bactria, name of ancient region in Central Asia and used for domestic camels), was first described as a species by the famous Russian explorer N.M. Przhevalsky in 1878. The historical natural habitat of the wild Bactrian camels is quite huge but presently, it is reduced to a few small areas in remote and inaccessible places of Mongolia & China. The population of wild camels is only a few hundred and their further survival in coming decades is under question despite protective measures.
