Can snakes grow a tail back?

I know lizards can grow a tail back when it's cut off, but if the end of a snakes tail is cut off, can they also grow it back?

    Lizards still retain the ancestral ability to regrow tails. Snakes evolved from a lizard but they have lost that ability. Not all lizards can grow their tail back either. Only some of them can.
