    Yes, a rat can lose its tail and still live.  One function of a rat’s tail is to regulate its temperature, so a rat without a tail will take longer to cool its body.  They also use their tails for balance.  If a rat where to somehow severe its tail, it would have to learn to compensate while climbing and running.
