Pileated Family 008
If you ever wondered how long a pileated woodpecker’s tongue is you probably didn’t think it was quite this long. A pileated woodpeckers tongue actually starts at the top beak, goes over the top and around the back of the skull and finally into the back of the mouth. When they stretch out the tongue it can be twice as long as the beak itself. The tip has little barbs on it for catching ants.
