Do Camels Store Water In Their Humps?

No, their humps are actually where they store fat, not water. They can go for a few months without water, because they can take in water so fast. They can drink 50 gallons of water in only a few hours. This myth was probably started, because camels can go for a very long time without water, and have very big humps, so people thought that they stored water in their humps.
