The durable Dorcas gazelle
The small but sturdy Dorcas gazelle (Gazella dorcas) can go its entire life without a single sip of water. These creatures get all the moisture they need from their plant-based diet, which is mainly comprised of acacia trees. They're small but they pack a punch, running at speeds as high as 60 miles per hour when they need to.
