Not because of ganing lysosomes because all animal cells have it. the difference is based on the apoptosis program (I hope I wrote it right) that's coded from our genetic traits.

Humans are ingenious compared to other animals therefore we have no need for a tail. Our brain has developed methods to protect what's around us like the idea of a weapon;therefore, a tail will not be needed to feal or direct anything in our security or movement. yes it is true opoptosis is involved, because it figures that a tail is not needed for any condition. Optosis is also used to destroy a cell, a.k.a programed cell death.

Our environment didn't require a tail, the first humans evolved to live on grasslands and not places with trees that required a tail for either balancing on trees or grasping as in the new world monkeys. Lysozomes digest materials for the cell, it doesn't create.
