“…Diagram illustrating jaw, tongue and hyoid movements during a single tongue cycle of Eublepharis macularius (lateral view on the left, frontal view on the right). (a–d) The tongue is protruded from the buccal cavity and deforms so that its dorsal surface contacts the water (W) (in accordance with Kim & Bush, ; Bels et al, ). Water moves posteriorly to the oesophagus through the buccal cavity as a result of lingual action (see the text for explanation).…”

“…Water is an essential resource, and most terrestrial vertebrates must drink to compensate for water loss. In many taxa, the tongue is used actively during drinking (Heidweiller, van Loon & Zweers, ; Bels, Goosse & Kardong, ; Kim & Bush, ; Rico‐Guevara et al , ; Bels et al , ). It is, therefore, anticipated that the tongue’s morphology and functional anatomy, and those of associated areas of the buccopharyngeal region, will reflect efficient and effective transfer of water from the environment to the oral chamber and thence to the gut.…”
