    Most animals can find water, either instinctively or (in the case of humans) by reason. Turtles head for the most open horizon, which is why people who live in beach-front houses in FL are asked to douse their lights when the turtles are hatching. Humans, and probably other animals, head downhill and eventually come to water. Some animals can smell it. If there is a river or stream, you might be able to hear it too.

    Most animals can do this instinctively, even humans can gather information from their surroundings that will help them find water. Turtles don’t follow water they follow the glow from the horizon, which is leaving due to light pollution. Polar Bears can smell land and water and go from there by sent.

    An animal just randomly set in an area they’ve never been in before wouldn’t just automatically know where the water is, but after a while they would probably be able to figure out where it is. If it’s been in the area before, animals like pigeons, who have homing devices basically built into them would be able to. Snakes (although they wouldn’t really need to go to the water unless they were water snakes) might be able to feel the vibrations of groundwater or something like that underneath them. Other wise I’ve never heard of such an animal. (Maybe an animal with great hearing or smell, or a bird)
