 A Crocodile cannot stick it’s tongue out!

Crocodile

To many people, alligators and crocodiles look very much alike. They are two distinct species with many notable differences. While both have tongues, only the alligator can stick his out.

A crocodile’s tongue doesn’t move. It is held in place at the roof of the mouth by a membrane.

Because crocodiles spend so much time underwater, the tongue helps keep the throat closed, protecting the animal’s airway. Unlike other species, the tongue plays no part in feeding.

P.S. At the end of the day, it doesn’t really matter since it swallows it’s food whole anyway 😉

FYI – Here is a comparison between a crocodile and an alligator…
