Collecting Water from Animals


Another way of getting fresh water in a survival situation is through animals. Animals eyes contain water that can be obtained by sucking on them. All fish, saltwater and otherwise, carry some fresh water along their spine. By carefully gutting them you can remove the backbone and pour it right down your throat or into a container to save for later. Be wary of the other juices in fish though as they are high in protein and digesting them will take water away from your vital organs, dehydrating you faster. In the desert some species of frogs and toads also contain freshwater reservoirs in their bodies.
