This experiment was conducted to determine the medullated content of inner coat of dromedary and Bactrian camels kept in different provinces of Iran. A total of 438 male and female (71 and 371) camels were grouped into fifth classes and hair samples were taken from right midside of animals. Analysis of variance was performed using general linear model way SAS package and the least square means were generated with this program. Significant (P < 0.01) difference was found in inner coat percentage between age groups and provinces. There were significant (P < 0.01) difference in the percentage of medullated and non medullated fibers between the two species of camels, age groups and provinces. It was shown that the females and yearling-2ed age group in Kerman province had higher inner coat percentage (82.64 ± 0.5 and 84.6 ± 1.2 %) respectively.
