The lizard is well-adapted to live in human dwellings. Which function of its adaptations is incorrectly described?
|A||Long, sticky tongue||To catch fastmoving prey|
|B||Long, narrow and flat body||To crawl between narrow crevices and spaces easily|
|C||Sticky pads on the underside of the feet||To walk on walls and ceilings without falling|
|D||Tail that can drop off and wriggles for a while.||To attract mates for reproduction|
Lizards, if get captured by the tail, shed (drop off) the tail and are able to flee. The detached tail continues to wriggle for some time creating a deceptive sense of continued struggle and distracting the predator’s attention from the fleeing prey animal. The lizard can partially regenerate its tail over a period of weeks. Thus, it is a self-defense mechanism to elude a predator’s grasp and not to attract mates for reproduction.
