Common Lizard with regrown tail

Observation - Common Lizard with regrown tail - UK and Ireland. Description: How it lost its tail is of course a mystery; perhaps picked up by a person, or attacked by a bird of prey, a weasel, stoat, or other predator. Dropping the tail is a defensive strategy. I've never seen a tail grow back perfectly though.
