Which Animal won't Drink water in its Lifetime?

Discussion in 'General Chat' started by kittyluver, Sep 25, 2008.

    I have wondered whether any animal can last the longest without water. So I Googled and found that there is an animal called Koala, which don't require water in its lifetime. It quenches its thirst by feeding on eucalyptus leaves, which contains more moisture. Eucalyptus leaves is the fifty percent of the feed for this animal...

    See the picture of KOALA below...

    @ bagwell - I know that's not your quote.... but
    They're not koala bears. They're koalas! Calling them bears is like saying "squirrel bears", or "eagle bears", or "cow bears" :)

    And for anyone that thinks they're cute and cuddly. I suggest you come to AU and try holding one :D They fkn stink, they're grumpy, and they've got claws that can pull out your intestines :p

    I always wondered how fish and sea animals drink, since salt causes all sorts of problems when consumed. Someone mentioned that most fish have a de-salination process built in which allows them to drink salt water, but I'm not so sure.

    I can't be bothered trying to explain this, so I'll copy and paste from Wikipedia:

    If I call my umbrella a bear, it doesn't mean it is a bear :)

    As i know, kangaroo rat can live without Water.
    Besides, both giraffes and rats can go longer without drinking water than a camel.
