    You should have mentioned Skinks, who have bright blue tails so the predators will go for the tail instead of the body, so they can detach it.

    6:19 They take both of their claws? Dude, that’s like being stranded in the woods and being unable to use your arms for a year. They might be able to live with one claw, but anyone who thinks they can survive with none is a complete moron.

    does it hurt them though? or do they not feel pain when they do this? and do they control this or are their tails just built in a way that they easily break off?

    Dude that kid who pulled the tail off of the lizard on the pool noodle pissed me off so much, the parent just allowed him to do that like the animal is just for entertainment. Makes me sick when parents let their kid abuse animals.

    I once had a crested gecko that had jumped out of it's tank while I was trying to clean his tank. I screamed for my kids to get the cats out of the room. They came and did. We shut the door trying to find where this damn gecko flew off too. Those suckers can jump! After about 30 minutes of trying to get this dude, my son got him. In the process, the gecko dropped his tail. The gecko was secure back in his house, and we had this creepy flopping dropped gecko tail on my floor. What do you do with a dropped and flopping tail? Well, with king snakes around, nothing gets wasted 😅

    I love so much animal logic. I was just reading, two weeks ago, about Squamata synapomorphies and one of them is autotomy, and than you made this video. This isn't the first time it happen. I love how you collect impressive footages, with a very interesting text and info compilation and mix all them with musics that sounds like Stranger Things series, and with very old videos (I can only imagine how hard to get the specicific scenes for scpecific moments on the script.
