Body parts that start with T

Parts of your body. Not all of these are human parts - people don't have tails and wings but they still qualify as body parts!

Tis forTail

Most animals have tails - people and apes don't. A tail is just an extension of the animal's backbone. Animals use their tails to communicate - dogs wag their tails when they are happy, cats wave their tails when they are angry and put their tails straight up to say "hello". Animals like cows and horses use their tails to swat flies away. The kangaroo has a big, heavy tail that it uses to balance itself when it hops.
