Why Do Some Animals Have Tails?

 

Animals have tails for many different reasons....

Tails can be used to get around, like a fish, an alligator or a beaver. Birds use their tails to help them fly.

Kangaroos use their tails for balance and so do geckos and cheetahs.

A porcupine uses his tail as a weapon; a monkey uses his tail as an extra arm.

A giraffe uses his tail as a flyswatter. Can you think of another animal who does this? Hint – it lives on a farm. 
 
How is your pet feeling? A wagging tail means a happy dog; a tail between its legs means an unhappy/scared one. 

Sometimes a tail can regrow. A lizard’s tail can break off and grow back.
