Attachment Location

Human tongues are attached to the backs of our mouths, while frogs' tongues are connected right where their mouths start. This is not without a useful purpose. Frogs' tongues are designed to jut out and retrieve sustenance, a process that is occasionally called a "lingual flip." Frogs don't only differ from people in how their tongues are attached; their tongues are different from most creatures.

Pushing Their Tongues Out

When frogs' mouths are ajar, their tongues are driven forward by muscle contractions. This action rapidly tugs frogs' mouths down, which then directs the rear portion of the tongues outward. The pressure produced by the weight of the tongues leads them to stretch to roughly twice as long as when they're at rest.

Frog's tongues are attached to the front of their mouths rather than at the back like humans. When a frog catches an insect it throws its sticky tongue out of it's mouth and wraps it around its prey. The frog's tongue then snaps back and throws the food down its throat.Frog's tongues are attached to the front of their mouths rather than at the back like humans.
