An aquarium fish and a pigeon were fed on protein diet. In what different forms would they excrete their nitrogenous waste ?  name the process.

Dear student,
Aquarium fish when fed with protein diet they utilises nitrogen from protein and metabolises to produce ammonia. These animals are called ammonotelic animals. When pigeons are fed with protein diet they utilises nitrogen and metabolises to produce uric acid. These animals are called uricotelic animals.

Regards
