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?
