What do the desert lizards do when their body temperature drops?
(a) They burrow in the sand
(b) They hide in the soil
(c) They move in a shady place
(d) They bask in the sun
This question was addressed to me in my homework.
I want to ask this question from Organisms and Populations topic in chapter Organisms and Populations of Biology – Class 12
Correct choice is (d) They bask in the sun
To explain I would say: The desert lizards are cold-blooded animals that cannot regulate their body temperature. They bask in the sun when their body temperature drops to regulate their temperature to perform various metabolic activities.
