Background: The Bactrian camel (Camelus bactrianus) has two humps on its back, in contrast to the dromedary which has one. Bactrian camels are over 2 meters tall and weigh over 725 kg. They are capable of drinking around 120 litres of water at a time. In the Mongolia, this is usually in the form of ice or snow. Their mouths are extremely tough, allowing them to eat thorny desert plants.
