Tail – Tails represent various things depending on what creature they are connected to and other attributes about them. In general tails represent a showy part of an animal that was at some point in their evolutionary history used for balancing their body weight. Predatory animals often use their tails to mesmerize their prey. If you have a pet cat you may be aware that he or she flicks her tail when she is stalking prey. This is meant to distract the prey from the most dangerous part of her, her mouth. If you dream about having a tail all of the attributes it has are important in determining what it specifically means.
