Does Intelligence simply allow the player who controls the creature with Intelligence to ignore cards like Shell or Burrowing?

Or does intelligence allow the controller of the Intelligent carnivore to in fact suspend an opponent creature's ability cards, like Lost Tail or Metamorphose? Does the lost tail card get discarded with no effect against Intelligence, or does intelligence applied to Lost Tail mean that the ability cannot be applied to begin with?

Yes. But you may choose to ignore only one trait per one Intelligent animal.

No. INTELLECT only allows a carnivore to ignore the trait, making its victim less protected. If you choose to ignore non-defensive traits (like METAMORPHOSE or GRAZING), they will still work.

If you choose to ignore TAIL LOSS, it will not work at all (and therefore will not get discarded).
