Let's Be Practical

A mother and baby camel are talking one day when the baby asks, “Mom, why do I have these huge, three-toed feet?”

The mother replies, “Well son, when we trek across the desert, your toes will help you to stay on top of the soft sand.”

“OK,” says the son.

A few minutes later, the son asks, “Mom, why do I have these great long eyelashes?”

“Son, they’re there to keep the sand out of your eyes on the trips through the desert.”

“OK,” replies the son.

After a short while, the son says, “Mom, why do I have these great big humps on my back??”

His mother, now getting impatient, replies, “They are there to help us store water for our long treks across the desert.”

“That’s great, Mom. So we have huge feet to stop us sinking, and long eyelashes to keep the sand from our eyes, and these humps to store water, but Mom...”

“Yes, son?”

“Why do we need all of these when we live at the zoo?”
