A
Ureotelic animals
loader

D

Solution

The correct option is C Uricotelic animals
Animals that excrete a major portion of nitrogenous waste in the form of semisolid or solid uric acid are called uricotelic animals (e.g., birds, lizards, snakes, terrestrial insects, snails.) In these animals ammonia is converted into less toxic, relatively insoluble uric acid, which can be excreted with a relatively small amount of water.
