Hi, I am a Giraffe and I do want to share some interesting facts about my COOL tongue. We spend the majority of our life grazing using our tongue in plenty of hot African sunny days. We love eating leaves from a thorny tree and would be horrible to have my tongue sunburned. Thank goodness our tongues are high in melanin which is a pigment that protects us from the hot Sun exposure. You all know we have long necks, and very extended legs, but we also have long tongues. Just an average tongue for us would be between 45 cm - 50 cm in length and compared to you my tongue is 5 times longer.
