Data from - A new tale of lost tails: correlates of tail breakage in the worm lizard Amphisbaena vermicularis

Mario R. Moura, Jhonny J. M. Guedes & Henrique C. Costa
Predator-prey interactions are important evolutionary drivers of defensive behaviours, but they are usually difficult to record. This lack of data on natural history and ecological interactions of species can be overcome through museum specimens, at least for some reptiles. When facing aggressive interactions, reptile species may exhibit the defensive behaviour of autotomy by losing the tail, which is also known as ‘urotomy’. The inspection of preserved specimens for scars of tail breakage can reveal possible...
