organic-related trivia question...

Who will be the 1st to answer this question correctly........?


The South American country of Bolivia was once not a land-locked country as it is today, but had a portion of it's border stretch to the Pacific ocean.

Why did it lose this territory?

Close enough!

The most correct answer is guano.

And the battle over the land was called the Guano War.


It all started over a big fight over the world's biggest pile of BIRD POOP, right at the end of the American Civil War!
