Correct option is
A

They are cold blooded

  • Lizard being a reptile is a cold-blooded animal. 
  • Cold-blooded refers to the ability of an organism to change its body temperature with respect to the surrounding.
  • During the extremely cold, lizards face the danger of either their blood freezing up or their temperature dropping drastically, as a result of which they become immobile and can easily fall prey to enemies. 
  • Hence, lizards hibernate in cracks of walls or beneath the soil to conserve energy and to avoid predators.
So, the correct option is A.
