6 Animals that can Survive Without Food and Water for Months

Humans can barely survive without food and water for days. Eating food is part of the things that keeps us alive and it is human instinct to eat everyday. But did you know that there are actually some unique animals which can live without food to eat or water to drink? Yes, they can still survive for months or even years! Interesting, right? 

Here are the 6 most unique animals that can live without food and water.....

1. Camels

The number one animal on the list is Camels which are used as a means of transportation through the desert because of its ability to survive without food and water. If you are too curious of what’s on the humps on the camel’s back, well, it’s where their fats are stored. It helps them survive the world without water for about 40 days while traveling the desert land. So it is literally like a food store😁

2. Sharks

Surprisingly, even sharks too can survive even without food for 8 to 10 weeks. Their hunting skills become more intense during this period of no food and they tend to be more violent in their reaction towards their prey.

3. Spiders

Spiders usually have reserved food that is hidden somewhere because they are good hunters whose trap is always set for their prey. But when the moment comes that there’s no food to catch or eat, spiders can still survive up to 3 to 4 months and even can last up to 1 year.

4. Penguins

During cold weather, penguins’ metabolism is also reduced, which can help them endure life without food or water for 2 to 4 months. Male penguins are in-charged of keeping baby penguins warm and comfy, while female penguins are the ones who conquer subzero temperatures just to hunt. 

5. Galápagos tortoises

The Galápagos tortoise complex or Galápagos giant tortoise complex ( Chelonoidis nigra and related species) are the largest living species of tortoise. The largest tortoise can live without any food or water and can stay up to 2 to 3 years. Interesting!

6. Bears

During cold season or winter, bears tend to sleep more. This slow activity cuts their metabolism and preserves their energy, which helps them survive up to 100 days without food and water.
