A mother and baby camel are talking one day when the baby
camel asks, "Mom, why have I got these huge three toed feet?"
The mother replies, "Well son, when we trek across the desert
your toes will help you to stay on top of the soft sand."
"OK," said the son.
A few minutes later the son asks, "Mom, why have I got these
great long eyelashes?"
"They are there to keep the sand out of your eyes on the trips
through the desert."
"Thanks Mom," replies the son.
After a short while, the son returns and asks, "Mom, why have
I got these great big humps on my back??" The mother, now a
little impatient with the boy replies, "They are there to help
us store water for our long treks across the desert, so we can
go without drinking for long periods."
"That's great Mom, so we have huge feet to stop us sinking, and
long eyelashes to keep the sand from our eyes and these humps
to store water, but Mom..."
"Why the heck are we in the San Diego zoo?"
