Often camels are born white and will turn brown as they are growing up.
The two surviving species of camel are the dromedary, or one-humped camel (as seen above), which inhabits the Middle East and the Horn of Africa; and the bactrian, or two-humped camel, which inhabits Central Asia. Both species have been domesticated; they provide milk, meat, hair for textiles or goods such as felted pouches, and are working animals with tasks ranging from human transport to bearing loads.
