Level 4 - abstract
Word: Autotomy

Origin:
From auto- + -tomy, after German Autotomie, French autotomie. The Greek prefix auto- means “self.”

Definition:
The casting off of a part of the body (e.g. the tail of a lizard) by an animal under threat.

Autotomy or self-amputation is the behaviour whereby an animal sheds or discards one or more of its own appendages, usually as a self-defense mechanism to elude a predator's grasp or to distract the predator and thereby allow escape. Some animals have the ability to regenerate the lost body part later.
