In Egypt, camels are important resources. Camels provide transportation, shelter, fuel, and food to the Bedouin tribes in the desert. Camels can walk 5 km an hour and easily carry 150 kilograms (and can even carry up to 450 kg!).Their hair and skin are used to make tents, rugs, and bags. Their dung can be used as fuel and, in fact, has a pleasant scent as it burns. Camels also provide meat and milk that is more nutritious than cow's milk. It is no wonder that one of the Bedouin names for camels was Ata Allah - God's gift.
