Parakeets That can Survive a Month Without Water
Wild parakeets live in the deserts of Australia where it rarely rains. Since they meet their need for water from the seeds on which they feed, these birds can easily survive without drinking water for a month in very dry seasons. Water is vital to wild parakeets. For that reason, they organize all their lives according to climatic conditions.
For example, if water is insufficient, they stop breeding and begin to search for new places with water. As soon as they find a sufficiently big body of water, they begin to lay their eggs.
It is only by the inspiration of Allah that parakeets organize their lives in compliance with climatic conditions. Since the survival of their species is essential, they do not take any risks and stop breeding at once. Our Lord, Who knows everything and is well aware of His creatures, inspires them to behave so wisely. In a verse in Surat al-Isra’, Allah says:
The seven heavens and the earth and everyone in them glorify Him. There is nothing which does not glorify Him with praise but you do not understand their glorification. He is All-Forbearing, Ever-Forgiving. (Surat al-Isra’: 44)
