Camel first appeared in North America, but the population in this part of the world became extinct some 10,000 years ago.
Ancestors of modern camels migrated into Eurasia and gradually adapted to the arid environment of the Middle East, North Africa, and Central Asia.
Camels are still bred for their milk, meat, and hair nowadays, although, in some areas, people also use them for transportation, for example, in the Great Indian Desert.
Much like other domesticated animals, camels can be firmly attached to their handlers/owners; the hoofed and humped mammals have a great memory, respond to music, and mourn the deceased.
Their willingness to love is only matched by their ability to hate.
To the owners, tender love and care come with tremendous rewards.
Cruelty to camel comes with equally great vengeful aggression. One of the cruelest cases of camel attacks happened about five years ago in the northwestern side of India.
A camel bit off and severed the head of its owner, seemingly out of anger, because the animal had been tied and exposed to unbearable heat all day. The rage continued for six long hours.

In the Great Indian Desert, where the temperature can be scorching hot on a regular day, even a camel – an animal adapted to an arid environment and known for its immense strength – might not be able to keep its head cool.
On May 21, 2016, a local man named Urjaram left his camel with its legs tied while hosting some guests at his house.
When he remembered about it and tried to take the restraint off, the camel lifted him by the neck and threw him down. It then chewed his body and severed his head.

The camel maintained aggressive behavior until 25 men joined the effort to calm the animal down. Eventually, after six hours of struggling, the animal calmed down.
The attack took place in the city of Phalodi, located in the state of Rajasthan, India.
The previous day the town registered an average temperature of 51-degree Celsius (123-degree Fahrenheit), the highest since record-keeping began.
Although increasing heat and intense sunshine are typical weeks before the monsoon season, a temperature higher than 50°C is unusual.
