Drinking Water Preferences of Other Animals
The qualitative and quantitative aspects of drinking
water requirements of domesticated animals are studied
and described within the context of animal husbandry.
relatively few studies have been focused on the
drinking behavior of wild animals. A recent study has
shown that feral pigeons do not discriminate drinking
water according to its content of metabolic wastes,
such as uric acid or urea (mimicking faeces- or
urine-pollution by birds or mammals respectively).
