It’s called SCIENCE, people. GROW UP. If a man wants to show you what giraffe tongues are like, then the least you could do is watch and not snicker. Giraffe tongues, it turns out, are about 20 inches in length, usually colored an ugly dark black, blue, or purple. The clip above from an upcoming episode of Outrageous Acts Of Science shows a zookeeper from the Out Of Africa park in Camp Verde Arizona, feeding a giraffe by holding a biscuit and getting Frenched and drenched by the animal’s long dark and very muscular tongue. And that ooey-gooey giraffe saliva? It’s supposed to protect the giraffe from being bitten by ants on the lips and tongue. Now you know.
Watch the erotic kiss below.
“Giraffes are browser animals so they browse amongst trees,” Australian biologist Chris Krishna-Pillay told Outrageous Acts Of Science. “Their height means they can get very high up, but that’s not enough. Some of the trees they like to browse on are acacia trees which has evolved these really sharp spines in order to try and stop animals eating their foliage, so the giraffe’s long tongue can reach in between those spines and grip the leaf and tear it off.”
