A Bat’s Tongue

By Anupum Pant

A bat’s tongue, as she says in the video, is a phenomenally strange work of nature. It’s just a long tongue, there’s no tube inside of it. And still, it manages to somehow put it inside a long jar full of honey and slurp in the honey water. How does it do it? Well, scientists do not seem to have understood it yet, but it looks like there is some sort of capillary action going on here, due to the special grooves on the tongue of this bat.
