It is ironic that now Camels live in the deserts of Saudi Arabia and Africa and Mongolia even though their original home was North America. I think the same is true of horses. They were once a North American animal. That is interesting. I would love to know what it was that wiped them out some 13,000 years ago. What happened to all the large North American Animals? What wiped them out? I find it difficult to believe that it was just humans that caused it because there were also humans in other parts of the world and they weren't able to wipe out pretty much all large land mammals. I've read articles that do say however that the Australian Aborigines can be blamed for a lot of the killing off of that continents large marsupials after they migrated there 40 to 50 thousand years ago.
