Salty (30) More files...
All animals require some salt to survive. However, some terrestrial animals have diets deficient in this essential mineral so they must seek supplemental salt sources. Where do they find this resource? Tears of other animals, sweat, by licking water off of ocean-soaked pebbles, natural salt licks or de-icing products used on roadways. Check out this gallery of animals satisfying their sodium needs!
