    Camels don’t actually store water in their humps; the humps are really mounds of stored fat. Camels store the water in their bloodstreams, and their kidneys and intestines actually hold a LOT of water. The Gila monster also stores water in its fat tissues, some of which are concentrated in its tail. Kangaroo rats can also extract water from their own urine through the tubes in their kidneys and put it back into their blood. Desert creatures are most likely to have these water conservation measures.
