The dromedary , also called the Arabian camel or the Indian camel , is a large, even-toed ungulate with one hump on its back. First described by Aristotle, the dromedary was given its binomial name by Carl Linnaeus in 1758. The dromedary is the next largest member of the camel family after the Bactrian camel. The oldest known ancestor of the dromedary is the ''Protylopus''. Males are 1.8–2 m tall and females are 1.7–1.9 m tall. Males range from 400–600 kg , while females weigh 300–540 kg.. more
