The mama replied, “The camels are called ships of the desert. The camels long legs helps to keep their bodies further away from the hot ground and they have large soft feet so they wont sink into the sand. They are meant in such a way, so that we can walk properly in the desert. With these legs we can move around the desert better than anyone does!”

The baby camel paused. After a beat, the baby camel asked, “Mom, I would like to know why do we have long eyelashes? They are so long that sometimes they get in my way and I am not able to see properly.”

The mother camel responded, “My son, those long thick eyelashes are your protective cover. Those long thick eyelashes protect your eyes from the desert sand when it blows in the wind.”

The baby thought for a while. Then he said, “I see. So the hump is to store water when we are in the desert, the legs are for walking through the desert and these eye lashes protect my eyes from the desert.”

The mom replied, “Exactly my son, you got everything correctly.”

The baby camel looked  like a bit confused now. He asked, “If god has given us so many talents to live in deserts, then what the hell are we doing in the Zoo?” This time mother camel went speechless.
