Curiosities: How many gallons (liters) of water can a camel drink in one go?

By Eddy Montilla.

Thanks to commercial globalization and technological advances, we can have almost any fruit at any time today. In my case, when I was a child, I could only have apples over the winter months. Since I like apples a lot, I used to eat them as many as I could. Either I look like camels or camels look like me, the truth is that these animals are in similar position than I was because of their habitat. One of the desert’s scarcest thing is water, so they try to drink this vital liquid as much as possible when it is in front of them because nobody knows how many days will pass without drinking it again. How much? Well, “just” 30 gallons, that is, 135 liters (considering an imperial gallon as unit) in less than 15 minutes.
