Many insects drink no water, and get all their water from their food, either because the food contains water (like caterpillars eating leaves or aphids sucking sap) or because water is one part of what they get when they combine their food with oxygen to get energy. That is called "metabolic water". Wood boring beetles and weevils that eat dry grain use metabolic water instead of drinking.

Some kinds of desert mice drink no water; they also rely on metabolic water.
