Answers (1)

Ans-The answer is the option (d), Warm-blooded

Explanation:
A distinguishing feature of warm-blooded animals is that they can maintain constant body temperature, irrespective of the surrounding environment. In other words, their body temperature is fixed. This is the common characteristic feature in birds and
mammals. Higher reptiles are the first to evolve this characteristic. Later the birds and mammals acquire this feature from higher reptiles during evolution. Concerning, pigmented skin is an adaptive feature in mammals, and which are not present in birds.
