What if a lizard dropped its tail in defense to confuse the predator, and then drank? Good teaser

Oh my goodness, I fell for this one...
Feb 19, 2012

I'm sorry but I this one was pretty dumb.
Feb 19, 2012

I LOVED that puzzle. I think it was funny and I think every one falls for it! Of course I had no clue, but it was a trick question, and just meant as a joke! Good one - thanks! Started my day off on a bright note!

I also did not care for this teaser. As stated above, there are lots of animals that have no tails. A human is part of the Animal Kingdom, and I have yet to see any with tails.
Also, in my opinion anyway, this is more of riddle than trick question and should have been in that category.
Feb 19, 2012

what about the animals that don't have tails?
Feb 19, 2012

I see the pedants are out in force. The answer is 'all animals that have a tail'.

This is as bad as the question: What month has 28 days? They all do!
Feb 19, 2012

I got this one before finishing reading it. I guess that raising 3 sons you get to hear many variations of this joke.

Humans, chimps, gorillas, orang-utans... none of them have tails. Good teaser still.
Feb 19, 2015

Oh my gosh, I got this one easily. I thought it was pretty obvious, but I do know what is easy for some is hard for others so on this one I feel pretty good. Humans have tailbones. My sister had hers operated on so that is how I know. Love all the comments also.

I can think of many more animals that don't have tails: Starfish, Octopuses, Jellyfish, Sponges, insects, spiders, worms, sea anemones... when you look at the statistics, tails are actually pretty rare in the animal kingdom.
Feb 19, 2015

You guys! The answer doesn't have to be so precise. The fact isn't that 'all animals WITH TAILS' drink and eat.' It's the fact that 'all animals drink and eat.' I mean, it's implied. It really is. Least I thought it was a good teaser, regardless of the wording for the answer.
