If camel humps are filled with fat reserves, what is it that helps them survive so long without water?

    During the hottest months of the summer, camels can go about five days without water, however, every time they drink, they consume around fifty gallons of water. They are able to go for so long without water because they “lose if very slowly.” A camel can lose more than 30 percent of its body weight from dehydration. Camels also reduce water loss by resting as often as possible, defecating dryly, urinating very little, and their body temperatures fluctuated with the surrounding temperature, thus, eliminating their need to sweat.
