If we had tongues as long as a frog's, they'd hang to our bellybuttons.

Although frogs' tongues aren't quite as long as they are in cartoons (stretching for meters at a time), frogs still have tongues that measure about a third of their body length—usually a few centimeters.

Frogs' tongues are attached at the front of their mouths, rather than the back. This allows the amphibians to extend their tongues much further and catch their meals. Additionally, a frog's tongue isn't sticky all the time—otherwise, it would glue its mouth shut! Instead, frogs produce sticky mucus right before attempting to catch their prey.
