Introduction: The aim of this study was to establish a description of the water cells area in dromedary camels.
Methods: Ten clinically healthy dromedaries of both sexes and different age, 4-9 years old were used in this study. The rumen was cut and opened, the contents were emptied of the rumen, then washed by running tap water to remove the ingestion. They were preserved in 10% formalin for 3-4 days to study object.
Results: This study has shown that the water cells area was consisted of many of the primary, secondary and partially folds confining the longitudinal, transversely cells.
Conclusions: The longitudinal and transverse cell forms the water cells which was considered chambers in which water was stored in camel's stomach.
