    • C.

      I Don't Know, But Count This Answer Right Anyway

    Explanation
    The statement is true because an ostrich's eye is indeed larger than its brain. This is a unique characteristic of the ostrich species. The size of an ostrich's eye is approximately 2 inches in diameter, while its brain is relatively small compared to its body size. This adaptation allows the ostrich to have excellent eyesight, which is crucial for survival in their natural habitat.

    • D.

      45 Minutes

    Correct Answer
    D. 45 Minutes
    Explanation
    Beavers are well-adapted to their semi-aquatic lifestyle and have several physiological adaptations that allow them to hold their breath for extended periods. They can close their nostrils and ears to prevent water from entering, and their heart rate and metabolism decrease while underwater to conserve oxygen. Additionally, beavers have a large amount of oxygen-storing myoglobin in their muscles. These adaptations enable them to stay submerged for up to 45 minutes before resurfacing for air.

      True

    • B.

      False

    • C.

      Both

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Camels have three eyelids, which is a unique feature among mammals. The first two eyelids are like those of other animals, while the third is a transparent membrane that acts as a protective barrier against sand, dust, and harsh desert conditions. This extra eyelid helps camels to keep their eyes moisturized and prevent damage from the desert environment. Therefore, the statement "Camels have three eyelids" is true.
