Camels are distinguished by certain characteristics that everyone who deals with them knows, as they tend to live among herds of the same species, and if some of them are separated from the herd, their first concern is to return to it again, and when the Arab knew this fact, he deliberately restricted the large camels in a specific place to make The whole herd grazes near it, so no one is deviating from it.
Desert 4×4 AKA Camels are also considered cowardly animals, despite their large size, but they are afraid of the smallest animals, and if a predatory animal or a swarm of locusts suddenly appears near them, their legs surrender to the wind and the whole herd follows them. Perhaps one of the most famous dispositions that were known about the camel is hatred, for it stifles hostility in the heart and waits for an opportunity. On the other hand, he is very kind to his children.

It was made of sticks and tree branches and carried on camels. It was decorated and furnished according to the position of the woman riding in it.
There is also the “Hawiyah”, which is a composite of women’s boats, which is a garment that is wrapped around the hump of the camel and then rides, and the “Hawiyah” is only for camels, unlike the “Sawiya” that may be for other animals.
Camels were known as the “ship of the desert” because they endured the difficult nature of the desert, and God granted them advantages that helped them do so, the most important of which are: the thick skin that covers its body and is covered with thick, short hair (lint), which is characterized by poor conduction of heat.

The camel was also the miracle of the Prophet Saleh, peace be upon him, to his family, where he told them that the camel has a share of water on a day, so they do not drink from it, and they have a share of it on the next day, so the camel does not drink in it, so they slaughtered the camel, breaking their promise to Saleh, peace be upon him. They did not do remorse, and God destroyed them so that their story would be an example and an indication of God’s power.
