What could be cuter than an animal sticking out its tiny tongue? Or, even a not-so-tiny one - see, in the animal world, tongues come in different shapes, sizes and textures. They can serve a different function depending on an animal - feeding, grooming, or even gathering information.

A giraffe, for example, cleans its ears using a 20-inch long tongue. But, if you think that's the biggest tongue on the planet, you're wrong. The blue whale, being the largest mammal in the world, boasts a tongue that weighs more than an Asian elephant - 2.7 tones. A whale uses its tongue to push out water from its mouth when sifting for krill.

Still, the prize for the longest tongue in relation to the body size goes to the chameleon. This tiny fellow can stretch its tongue up to 1.5 times to its body length when trying to reach the sweet nectar of flowers.

What's your favourite animal tongue?

Am I the only one worried about how dangerous this is? No matter the care of the owners or the good nature of the dog, a friendly pat of a paw could break ribs.

True, but dogs seem to know when the animal is too small to play with. Like babies, they're gentle and lick them, like the dog is doing now.
