For years scientists have been perplexed at how lizards regrow their tails, a great defense mechanism that could have huge implications for human amputees.

Scientists found that lizards enable at least 326 genes in specific regions to regrow their tail, in parts of their body ranging from wound healing areas, to embryonic development parts.
