The large eyes are protected by prominent supraorbital ridges; the ears are small and rounded. Unlike the camelids of the genus Lama, the dromedary has a hump, and in comparison has a longer tail, smaller ears, squarer feet and a greater height at the shoulder.
The dromedary has four teats instead of the two in the Lama species.
The dromedary has not occurred naturally in the wild for nearly 2,000 years.
It was probably first domesticated in Somalia or the Arabian Peninsula about 4,000 years ago.
Brucellosis is caused by different biotypes of Brucella abortus and B. In 2013, a seroepidemiological study (a study investigating the patterns, causes and effects of a disease on a specific population on the basis of serologic tests) in Egypt was the first to show the dromedary might be a host for the Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-Co V).
A 2013–14 study of dromedaries in Saudi Arabia concluded the unusual genetic stability of MERS-Co V coupled with its high seroprevalence in the dromedary makes this camel a highly probable host for the virus.
Products of the dromedary, including its meat and milk, support several north Arabian tribes; it is also commonly used for riding and as a beast of burden.
The dromedary is the smallest of the three species of camel; adult males stand 1.8–2 m (5.9–6.6 ft) at the shoulder, while females are 1.7–1.9 m (5.6–6.2 ft) tall.
The palate, which is often mistaken for the tongue, dangles from one side of the mouth and is used to attract females during the mating season.
The hair is long and concentrated on the throat, shoulders and the hump.
The distinctive features are its long, curved neck, narrow chest and single hump (the Bactrian camel has two), thick, double-layered eyelashes and bushy eyebrows.
The male has a soft palate (dulaa in Arabic) nearly 18 cm (7.1 in) long, which it inflates to produce a deep pink sac.
