Are there any lizards that don’t have a tail?

    Naturally all lizards have tails, but for a variety of reasons many species can lose them.  Some can voluntarily lose them, others can have them cut off to get out of a sticky situation.  The lizards that can lose tails can also grow them back, and the tail forms a very important part of their lives.  Up to 60% of a lizard’s stored fat is in its tail, so they can only survive for about 24 hours without it and without food as opposed to up to 35 days if they have their tail and no food.
