The one-humped camel (and its Asian relative - the camel (Camelus bactrianus)) is ingeniously adapted to life in the deserts. Long lashes protect the eyes as well as the nostrils from sand. They have wide steps, thanks to which they do not penetrate into loose ground. And legendary are their water reservoirs, hidden in humps. True, they are not water tanks, but ordinary fat. During a long march through arid territory, it is chemically incinerated, producing water, so the camel will last even longer without drinking. When he can drink, he quickly compensates for the loss, because he can drink up to 135 liters of water per minute.

As in previous conflicts, especially the wars of inheritance in the 18th century, there may have been hopes that diplomats would eventually solve the problems. Unfortunately, all these hopes soon came to fruition.
