Q: Why do dogs have such long tongue's?
Dog's and their tongue's
Feb 26, 2009
A dog has no sweat glands so to expel heat from the body a dog will pant & stick out his tongue. Also to cool down if the dog has a shorter muzzle the tongue looks longer & makes it breathe easier. Also the dogs tongue has more responsibilities then any other part of the dogs anatomy excluding the brain.It's a radiator,a, water lapper,a healer of wounds,a food conveyor,a register of tastes,a texture sensor,& a wet equivalent of a dog's handshake.
