I would like to know how camels react to cold conditions. I live in Pennsylvania where temperatures can get down around zero in winter (not consistently though) and can get into the 90's in summer. What are the coldest conditions that camels can tolerate?

I live in Kentucky and we have two camels,the temperatures here can dip into the single digits our camels do fine! but you need to keep them sheltered from the wind in cold temperatures,it is also important that when snow is on the ground that they have a place to go where their feet can dry.

Hey guys,

Dromedary camels evolved in the deserts of Africa where the temp can get to freezing at night and mega hot during the day. As long as the animal is not standing in constant snow or wind it should do fine.

We have just bought three camels and where we are we get some severe frosts in the winter and hot 'bushfire' temperatures during the summer.

Cheers Very Happy
