You are presented with an insectivorous skink for routine examination. You reach into the terrarium in which the skink is housed and carefully lift it out. As you are holding the skink gently and just about to transfer the beloved pet to the examination table, its tail suddenly breaks off and it falls to the floor of the cage and wriggles continuously for the next 10 minutes as its horrified owner gazes back and forth from the now-shed tail to you, becoming ever more doleful and dispirited.
