 Broken Tail

I bought my Yellow throated plated lizard at pet-co about 2 months ago . and i guess when he was there he got his tail bit off and i was wondering if it would grow back.

it will grow back as you heard. my sudan plated had something happen with his tail (no idea what) but it grew back in 6 months it broke in an odd way and a small mini tail went sideways while the rest went straight so my sudan drago has 2 tails. he doesnt mind but it does look a little funny. hope yours tail grows back with no problems.

I imagine it has to do with where the tail was broken (whether it grows back completely or smaller).

Ive never had this happen myself? Do their tails fall off if tugged, like a common fence lizard?
