Some lizards use their tails in defense. The tails break off when caught by a predator, allowing the rest of the lizard to escape.The venomous Gila monsters of the Southwest are also lizards, but their enormously fat tails are not detachable. The Gila monster uses the tail to store energy during periods when food is scarce. An African chameleon uses its tail as if it were a fifth foot, to hold onto limbs when climbing.Answered by LIPSIKA, 18 Mar '13 12:10 pm
