Imagine if you could get all the hydration you need, just from eating your greens! That’s pretty much the position in which camels find themselves. From a document released by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations,
“If the camel is kept near a water point or a river it may drink small amounts of water daily. In cold weather, and when green feed is available, the camel may not drink water for months because it can get all the water it needs from the plants.”
If we’re going by one of the camel’s native environments, it could be a desert oasis filled with acacia trees and date palm trees and little green shoots — eating those shoots and leaves, those camels may not need a sip of water for months!
