Why do some lizards have short tails and others of the same species have long ones? Short-tailed lizards have a tale to tell---if a lizard is caught by the tail, the tail will generally break off. Most lizards can grow new tails, but it takes a lot of energy to do so. This five-lined skink's long tail suggests it's a lucky lizard that so far has avoided narrow escapes.
