Abstract: The diploid chromosome number of Camelus dromedarius was found to be 74 and the auto-somes have been classified into three groups. The first group consists of 31 pairs of acrocentric autosomes designated as number 1 to 31. The second group includes four pairs of metacentric autosomes designated as 32,33,34 and 36. The third group is one pair of submetacentric autosome designated as number 35. The sex chromosomes are medium sized metacentric X-chromosome and small metacentric Y-chromosome.
