The blood of 10 adult male, and 10 young male camels has been examined. It is found that the red and white blood cell counts, hemoglobin content and packed cell volume are significantly higher in the young than in the adult camel, the coefficient of variation belong highest in the packed cell volume. Differential leucocyte count also shows a higher percentage of lymphocytes, and a lower percentage of neutrophils, in the young than in the adult camel. The mean corpuscular volume, mean corpuscular hemoglobin, and mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration are also presented. Whereas the mean corpuscular hemoglobin is more or less the same in the young and adult camel, the mean corpuscular volume is much higher, and consequently the mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration much lower, in the young than in the adult camel.
