Why Are We Here? – Story

A mother and a baby camel were talking one day when the baby camel asked;<>

─ Mom, why do we have these huge three-toed feet?<>

The mother replied;<>

─ Well son, when we trek across the desert, our toes will help us stay on top of the soft sand.<>

Two minutes later the young camel asked;<>

─ Mom, why do we have these long eyelashes?<>

─ They are there to keep the sand out of our eyes on the trips through the desert, the mother said.<>

─ Mom, why have we got these great big humps on our back?<>

─ They are there to help us store water for our long treks across the desert, so we can go without drinking for long periods of time.<>

─ So we have huge feet to stop us from sinking, long eyelashes to keep the sand out of our eyes, and these humps to store water.<>

─ Yes dear, said the mother.<>

─ So why are we in the San Diego Zoo?<>
