A mother and baby camel were talking one day when the baby camel asked, "Mom, I have a question. Why do I have these huge three-toed feet?"
The mother replied, "Well, son, when we trek across the desert, your toes will help you to stay on top of the soft sand." "OK," said the son.
A few minutes later, the son asked, "Mom, I have another question. Why do I have these great long eyelashes?" "They are there to keep the sand out of your eyes on the trips through the desert." "Thanks, Mom, replied the son.
After a short while, the son returned and asked, "Mom, here's one more question. Why do I have these great big humps on my back?" The mother, now a little impatient with the boy, replied, "They are there to help us store water for our long treks across the desert so we can go without drinking for long periods."
"That's great, Mom! 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. But, Mom....."Yes, son?" asked the mother. "I have one last important question.
"Why are we in the Zoo?"
