Do Khajiit have prehensile tails?

A few peeps commented that evolution-wise khajiit shouldn't have such long tails. I don't know why but I know prehensile tails would keep the tail around. So does anyone have lore bits that show khajiits and if they have prehensile tails or is it just something never talked about?

    Most races on here, while seeming to follow evolution, are created through divine inspiration. It's quite literally written in the lore.

    IIIII seriously doubt that...
    It's just for balance, really. :3

    'Evolution-wise'

    Hmmm...Khajiit hadn't come from a chain of evolution.
    Welcome, Moon-and-Star, to this place where destiny is made.

    I play healers or DPS often for vet dungeons and trials (NA, CP810+). I play mostly elves or Argonians.
    I primarily play Damage-Based stuff in PvP, but occasionally I'll play something tanky or got the heals.
    I also love gaining more knowledge both metaphysical and mundane regarding TES lore.

    I also occasionally role-play, but I prefer playing the game.

    Well obviously lol. I am not saying that. I am just asking if they ever had prehensile tails. I think one of the other khajiit have the prehensile tails, the ohms? I dunno. I just think it would be cool if I could grasp a tea cup with my khajiit's tail.

    As a non-native English speaker, can someone tell me what a ''prehensile'' tail is?

    Thanks to these fine gentlemen (gentlewomen?)@Eporem @kadochka I can now involve myself in this discussion.

    I believe that, yes, at least some Khajiit are capable of using their tails to hold items. If I recall correctly, it is said in the Elder Scrolls Novels that they use them to throw daggers and such.

    Gentlewoman. :) And I can believe holding items, but... when you say 'prehensile tails', I think of monkeys, and I think of being able to hold themselves up with their tails.. which I doubt they can do, most of the time?
    But throwing daggers is pretty believable, atleast for a Khajiit who's trained.

    I can't gaurantee it, as I only vaguely recall it, but it should be in either the Infernal City or Lord of Souls.

    As said, can't gaurantee it, as it's been a while since I've last read them. But I do recall it being mentioned in there.

    This one uses his tail to hold the J but finds all of his hairs singed near the tip.

    Well I do vaguely remember something about Khajiit physical prowess in those books. Khajiit do awesome things in the books like run on all fours and climb giant trees with great speed.

    You don't wanna know what a certain Khajiit can do with her tail, a yoyo, and a Pineapple.

    If any form of Khajiit were to have prehensile tails it would maybe be the Dagi and Dagi-raht form of Khajiit, as they seem to be (very-loosely) described to be monkey-like - in that they're lighter than Bosmer and can go higher in trees than them. But, that's really up in the air whether that's truly what they're like. It would be interesting.
