Dromedary


"(Isa. 60:6), an African or Arabian species of camel having only" "one hump, while the Bactrian camel has two. It is distinguished" from the camel only as a trained saddle-horse is distinguished from a cart-horse. It is remarkable for its speed (Jer. 2:23). Camels are frequently spoken of in partriarchal times (Gen. "12:16; 24:10; 30:43; 31:17, etc.). They were used for carrying" "burdens (Gen. 37:25; Judg. 6:5), and for riding (Gen. 24:64)." "The hair of the camel falls off of itself in spring, and is" woven into coarse cloths and garments (Matt. 3:4). (See [166]CAMEL.)
