What statement best describes the relationship between animal metabolic rate and animal size?

0 votes

 

For all animals, the mass-specific metabolic rate increases as the animal gets larger.

For large animals, the mass-specific metabolic rate increases as the animal gets larger, but for small animals the mass-specific metabolic rate remains at a constant high as the animal grows.

For small animals, the mass-specific metabolic rate decreases as the animal gets larger, but for large animals the metabolic rate remains constant as the animal grows.

For all animals, the mass-specific metabolic rate decreases as the animal gets larger.
