Watching the antics of cats may be a form of relieving stress for most people, but a group of researchers has taken this pastime one step further by becoming the first group to 3-D print a cat tongue mimic at 400 percent scale.
Tiny chameleons have surprisingly powerful tongues, researchers reveal in a new study. Like all small animals, these lizards need to consume more energy per body weight to survive. Therefore they have to shoot out their tongues unusually fast and far in order to compete with larger relatives for insect meals.
Dogs are often seen as "messy drinkers," but there is a method behind their sloppy ways. It turns out, they slurp up water using high-speed, precisely timed movements.
Researchers took a closer look at how exactly frogs snatch their prey up in one quick motion. They found that the tongue muscles are actually similar to sticky tape.
