Camels are equiped to deal with harsh desert conditions, such as flying sand- The camel’s eyes are protected by long eyelashes and have an extra thin eyelid. He can see through this 3rd eyelid allowing him to find his way even in a harsh desert storm.Also, the ears are small and very hairy, to keep flying sand from entering, and the nostrils can close completely or leave just a tiny opening for breathing.
