The natural world is filled with all sorts of flamboyantly bizarre creatures, but some animals are better at hiding their secret weirdness than others. Hiding inside some of their mouths are outrageous tongues, ones so crazy that it would probably change some peoples perspectives about the animal if they were to find out exactly what they do with said tongues. Some of the strangest tongues in nature include ones that are serrated, tongues that have developed unique abilities, and even some that are longer than the animal itself.

These odd animal tongues have evolved to perform all sorts of specific tasks, but that doesn’t make them any less unsettling. Even relatively harmless animals can quickly become terrifying as soon as they open their mouths. Tongues can sometimes seem gross and slimy, but they are essential organs that can make all the difference when it comes to an animals chances of survival. These are some of the craziest, most extreme, and most unique tongues in the animal kingdom.
