Did you know - a blue whale tongue weighs more than a few elephants?!steemCreated with Sketch.

in til •  last year

A blue whale tongue can weigh up to 200 tons


Well a male African elephants can weigh about 7000 kg

So lets do a calculation:

If 1 tongue = 181437 kg and 1 elephant = 7000 kg
Therefore:
181437 / 7000
=26 elephants

Ohh, I forgot that the toungue can also be about 32 m long.
