On average, a chameleon’s tongue is roughly twice the length of its body. In humans, that would be a tongue about 10 to 12 feet (about 3 to 4 meters) long. If a chameleon tongue was a car, it could accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 1/100th of a second—among nature’s fastest, strongest performances, a new study says.
