Explaining one thing a week in a sketch

Bactrian or dromedary camel? Never be confused again

So you know some camels have one hump and some have two. Well, many moons ago a reader, John, shared with me a foolproof way to know which camel you’re looking at. The bactrian camel, found in Central Asia has 2 humps, just like a B on its side, while the dromedary camel, found generally in the Middle East, has one hump just like a D on its side. Never wonder again.

You may also like stalactites, stalagmites or other “What’s the difference between” sketchplanations: tortoise/turtle, crocodile/alligator, dolphin/porpoise, centipede/millipede.
