The tongue, this organ that participates in the proper functioning of chewing, has an important role since food comes into direct contact with it. Indeed, it is the tongue that tells you whether the food you are eating is bitter, acidic, sweet or salty. Made up of 17 muscles, it measures an average of 9 centimeters. If at first glance, the tongue seems to be an organ that has only this function, for some people it is a source of amusement.
In fact, some people manage to perform feats with their tongue. We let you discover these incredible abilities!
