While Little Skink hunts yummy ants for breakfast, she is suddenly attacked by a crow! But she has a trick to escape - she snaps off her tail, and it keeps on wiggling! Little Skink is happy to be alive, but she misses her bright-blue tail. Listeners will enjoy pretending with her, trying on tail after tail. The first is too puffy-fluffy and another too stinky! Then one day Little Skink gets a big surprise...and she doesn't have to dream of tails anymore. The "For Creative Minds" section has information on tail adaptations and communications and a tail activity.
