Transcript of Period 8 Gagnier

Why do giraffes have blue tongues?
Answer:
The dark color provides protection from the sun for their tongues some people say. People guess the tongue has a dark shade to it to protect against sunburns.
Other blue tongued animals:
A startlingly bright blue tongued animal? The blue tongued skink, which is very aptly named. The blue-black tongue, one of the breed's most commonly known physical characteristics, belongs to the Chow Chow.
The Giraffe
A neck nearly 6 feet long that has only 7 bones belongs to the giraffe. Giraffes are mostly found in Africa, south of the Sahara. The giraffe has a tongue that is about 18-20 inches long and very prehensile. The giraffe stands up to 19 feet tall and weighs up to 2,800 lbs.
That is one blue tongue
No sunburns up here!
Look at this tongue!
