- The Camel is not a native Australian animal. But when camels were introduced they did so well that the camels that escaped or were let go by their owners multiplied rapidly and established a big and healthy population in the Australian Outback deserts. Today they are everywhere. Australian deserts contain huge numbers of wild camels.
- Camels can go without water for long periods of time. Also of about 350 or so plant species in the Deserts, the camel eats about 325 of them.
