Water and Animals

Plants and animals have adapted to live without water for short times.

Animals with water saving adaptations:



      See what the common eland does to survive in the hot and dry Savannah of Central Africa.

Concentrated means a very strong solution, without much water.

Reptiles have thick skin to reduce water loss and not dry out like biltong.


 The desert Rat has kidneys that keep water longer in the body. Clever little rat!!!
