    hi friend ........
    i am very glad to tell you that right answer of this question.

    some people thinks that camel can survive without drinking water in its whole life.
    but its not true .
    camel can survive upto 15 days without water.

    but A KANGAROO RAT can go it's entire life of 3 - 5 years without taking a single drop of water.
    keep in mind my friend .
    take care .

    Thumbs up Animal that can survive without drinking water in its whole life

    Hello Suraj

    Water is a basic requirement utilized in every body function, transports food and waste in and out of living cells, maintains body temperature, digestive actions, circulatory functions, transport of nutrients and hormones to different parts of body.

    There is no animal on earth that can survive without Water, a basic need for living organisms but some animals can prolong their survival without drinking water at the times of scarcity, by changing their food habits etc.

    Some animals obtain their water source from their own body metabolism and the food they consume, some store the water in their modified organs for storage so like this animals can prolong their time without drinking water. But when ever they get water they will drink, so some animals coming under this category

    The Kola
    Kangaroo
    Lizards
    Rat
    Caterpillars
    Aphids
    Desert mice etc
    .

    Coming to Insects, there is one insect named "Lepisma Saccharina" commonly known as "Silver Fish", which do not drink water in its life time. It obtain its water from its metabolism of food.


    Coming to the Scientific classification of Sliver Fish

    Kingdom: Animalia
    Phylum: Arthropoda
    Class: Insecta
    Order: Thysanura
    Family: Lepismatidae
    Genus: Lepisma
    Species: Saccharina


    Sliver fish consumes food containing polysaccharides, like starch, dextrin, from common house hold items like paints, paper, photos sugar, coffee, hair, carpet, clothing etc.

    So it obtain water from the carbohydrate food it taken, and the excretion is also very less when compared to other species in the same phylum.

    So friend this is the general information i had there are many other living animals and creatures on earth.

    Regards.

    Hi friend,

    Well, there are quite a few animals that may survive without water. So, i am mentioning them down here :

    >> Australian Koala, as we all know that koala only eats eucalyptus leaves for all his leave and gains moisture from there.



    >> Kangaroo rats,, They are one of the hardest animals in terms of water.. at times they may even decompose sea water, but they have ability to go without water



    >> Cockroach , No need of water for this little guy



    >> Tardigrade, It's world's toughest animal. It can survive even space, and vaccum and radiations too and keep them 10000 C temp. nothing will happen to them. Keep them on -273 C Temp. yet nothing will happen... no need of water if it wants. They are also called water bears. This animal is just like some super-hero and in a litre of water you will find as much as 25000 tardigrades, they are every where.



    Hope it helps!!

    Re: General Knowledge. Which animal can survive without drinking water in its whole life?

    Hello Friend !!

    There are many Animals which can Survive without taking Water for their Whole Life.

    First comes The Koala :


    The Koala doesn't drink water at all, it takes the necessary requirements for Survival from eucalyptus leaves.

    It gets everything from Eucalyptus Leaves.

    Koalas are different from bears.

    Next comes The Kangaroo Rats :


    This is known to everyone I guess, Kangaroo Rats will not drink water for any purpose.

    They live in arid environments, such as the Sonora Desert of the American Southwest.

    Rats gets most or all of its water requirements from metabolic water.

    They can survive for longer years without taking water.

    Next comes The Giraffe :


    Giraffe can survive without water for few months.

    Giraffe takes all its requirements from Green Leaves.

    And when they take water, they consume 12 gallons of water at a time.

    Next comes The Camel :


    Camels are found in Deserts where there is no excess of water.

    So camels are habituated to store water at once and are capable to manage the stored water for 1 to 2 months.

    There are many cases, where Camels are killed to take water from their body, since it has got large Water storage organ in its body.

    Next comes insects, Cockroaches, Silver Fishes, etc,.

    Good Luck !!

    Re: General Knowledge. Which animal can survive without drinking water in its whole life?

    Hi aspirant,

    Water is the basic need for the metabolism of food in every living being.
    So its a unavoidable fact that no living being can live without drinking water throughout their life.
    But this fact was proven wrong by many animals and they can be said as exception to this world and our assumptions.
    They are:
    Mealworms:



    They live entirely upon their own metabolically produced water.This may sound funny but its true.
    THe truth or science behind this is that:
    Their kidneys are directly attached to the end portion of rectum which helps them to absorb moisture from the food to the kidneys which is then transferred to the gut.
    And thus they get their necessary water.

    Kangaroo rats:



    They do not intake water directly into their bodies.
    Instead they eat roots and desert plant which have a high storage of water.
    So they do not depend for any external drinking of water.

    Many says koala and cockroaches do not drink water but its not true.
    Cockroaches do drink water but have small air pores in their body due to which they can not enter into deeper water layers. But it is seen that they drink water from droplets or water linings.
    And koalas are seen publicly drinking water from people so their is no about it.

    ALL THE BEST
