Conclusion

The classic animal of Egypt is the camel. Like no other, it is adapted to long-term existence without water, and therefore it is widely distributed in the hot Egyptian semi-deserts. Camels are domesticated animals, as a large number of them are kept in households for transport purposes, as well as for milk production.

Camel can carry up to several people at the same time. It is perfectly adapted to the movement on the sands, for which it is greatly appreciated by the locals and is respectfully called the “ship of the desert”.

Most Egyptian animals are nocturnal. This means that during the day they hide in burrows or natural shelters, and go hunting only at night. This is partly due to the fact that at night the air temperature is much lower.

Cats are widely represented in Egypt. Once upon a time, even lions and cheetahs lived here. Now several types of cats permanently live here, including: wild, dune, reed cat and others.

Foxes are no less widely represented. The three most common species are Afghan, Sandy and Common.
