      "The giant palm salamander of Central America shoots out its tongue with more instantaneous power than any known muscle in the animal kingdom, a new study finds."

      "Bolitoglossa can extend its tongue more than half its body length in about 7 milliseconds, or about 50 times faster than an average eye blink."

      "The findings revealed the tongues were propelled outward much faster than could be achieved by muscle contraction alone." 03-07
