The Various Ways Animal-People Quench Their Thirst

Let’s begin with understanding why it is important to drink water. So now, let’s explore how some of our impressive co-inhabitants get the water they need.

Zoologists refer to Mongolian camel-people like me as “Camelus bactrianus.” We are the only domesticated animal-people who can close their nostrils, and we extract moisture from the air we exhale. But if vegetation is available, we get moisture from what we eat and of course, we drink large amounts of water whenever we can – and very quickly. In the Namib Desert of Africa, there are beetle-people who harvest water from the air – well, OK, it’s fog.

The researchers found that when cat-people drink, they extend their tongue straight down toward the water, dip just the tip in, and flick it upward. A tiny amount of liquid rises into the air, which they quickly catch with their mouth. Amazingly, domestic cat-people can repeat this four times per second! Dog-people, on the other hand, have a less sophisticated method. They use their tongue like a ladle to draw water up into their mouth.

In deserts and arid regions across Africa and Asia, sandgrouse-parents have a special adaptation for satisfying their thirsty young ones. The filaments of their belly feathers can absorb and retain water! This way, they can deliver close to 40 milliliters of the precious liquid to their families. Let’s check out how elephant-people quench their thirst. According to studies, elephant-people can hold up to 9.5 liters of water in their trunk.

There’s another way of ingesting water that we haven’t talked about yet. Have you heard of capillary action? Anyway, some species of snake-people use this principle to drink. And in Australia, people from the thorny devil kingdom have textured skin with capillary channels that lead to their mouth. The design not only collects condensation and rain, but it can also pull up water from puddles and moist sand!

You can help save tremendous amounts of fresh water by following a vegan diet. Let’s recreate paradise on Earth for the happiness and fulfillment of everyone!
