Storyboard Description


Storyboard Text

  • The dry areas of land now known as deserts once had water and were bursting with life. 
  • The predecessor of the camel lived without the familiar hump on their back because it was not necessary. 
  • As time passed, the deserts began to dry up and water became more scarce. 
  • Eventually one of the predecessors was born with a hump on its back. It was a helpful mutation, as it allowed for the animal to store some water in the hump.  
  • The camels with the mutation survived longer than the others who died from dehydration. This means that they were more likely to mate and pass down the hump. 
  • Through years of further evolution, we are now left with the modern-day camel, able to sustain a significant amount of water in its hump and survive the dry environment called a desert.
