Abstract : In the present paper, 240 camels were sampled for the determination of trace elements and different heavy metals. The variation factors included age, sex and physiological status which were assessed for some parameters. On the average, the mineral contents were 190.3 [mu]g/100ml (iron), 60.1 [mu]g/100ml (copper), 44.0 [mu]g/100ml (strontium), 22.5 [mu]g/100ml (arsenic), 20.0 [mu]g/100ml (zinc), 19.7 [mu]g/100ml (selenium), 19.3 [mu]g/100ml (boron) and 14.6[mu]g/100ml (barium). Other minerals like aluminium (3.7 [mu]g/100ml), molybdenum (2.9 [mu]g/100ml), chromium (2.0 [mu]g/100ml), nickel (1.8 [mu]g/100ml), lead (1.5 [mu]g/100ml), manganese (0.16 [mu]g/100ml), cobalt (0.08 [mu]g/100ml) and cadmium (0.07 [mu]g/100ml) were in very small concentration.
