This study aimed to determine the anatomical features and histological structure as well as some histochemical aspects of tongue of two species of insectivorous vertebrates, which differ in their classification, habitat and activity (lizard, Trachylepis vittata and the Long-eared hedgehog, Hemiechinus auritus) by using light microscope. The results show that the tongue of the two species is differ in size, color and shape, three parts are distinguished in the dorsal surface of the tongue, apex… CONTINUE READING
