Wildlife/What is the average length of a Lion's tongue?


Do males have longer tongues? Would you say it is 10 inches? 15 inches?

Good day Jack

I am extremely sorry that you had to wait for your answer.

The average length of a Lion's tongue is roughly 12 inches (1 foot). On average males have longer tongues that females, but it is not that much (on average about 1 inch longer than females).

If you have any other questions regarding any African Wildlife species, please feel free to contact me, and I will be glad to answer them as accurately as possible.

I can answer most questions regarding wildlife which includes birds, mammals and marine wildlife within Southern Africa.

Please do not ask me about any other animals which is not within Southern Africa. I do not answer questions regarding domestic animals.
