The camel which was well known as ship of the desert and famous as the beast of the burden. Population pressure and intense needs has changed the concept about camel. Now the animal is playing an important role in the diversified ecosystem. Camel provides valuable food and has a peculiar role in the food chain. It has the provision of food to the people living in the harsh climate especially to the deep deserted population. It has special attributes which enable him to survive in the harsh, hostile and warm as well as cool climates where the other animals do not. It has the ability to perform and thrive well in those climates where even the survival of other livestock species is difficult. These virtues have given the animal a keen importance that it could be the future hope to bridge the prevailing food shortage for the population.
