Is it true that there is an animal with a tongue as long as its body?

Yes. Chameleons can reel in food with super-long tongues that shoot out faster than the human eye can see. The chameleon’s tongue is indeed as long as its body and is covered with a sticky mucus. It catches prey, however, by using a pair of powerful muscles inside the tongue. These muscles contract, turning the tongue’s tip into a concave suction cup—an insect rarely has a chance!
