The lorikeet’s tongue is unique in that it is an adaptation to retrieve pollen and nectar from flowers. They can’t digest seeds like other birds. Reference: volunteered at a zoo/aviary. Had lories there. Energetic as heck

THIS IS REAL?


GeebusNZ

Horribly real. Rainbow Lorikeets on your shoulder delicately tonguing your ear canal is an experience. (shudder)

klip_twings

> (shudder) Experience an is canal ear your tonging delicately shoulder you on Lorikeets Rainbow. Real horribly. Can confirm. It *feels* like it should make sense when you read it, like your brain can tell there's a sentence structure still in play, but being backwards it's gibberish and uncanny. That confusion and halting cadence forces you to sit on the uncomfortable imagery that normally you could skim over, and this is even more emphatic when you actually *do* read it backwards, instead of reading the quote where I line it up backwards to forwards for the reader.

A pet bird nipping you in a friendly way is cute. A dog or cat licking you is cute too, albeit super unhygienic.

I had a pet bird thankyouverymuch. He even sat on the edge of my plate & ate dinner with me (super unhygienic, haha). What I did not have is a bird with a DEMON TONGUE

It may look like something from a Hellraiser movie but their tongues are soft, like a small paintbrush.

I think you mean Blade 2 with the new strain of vampires whose faces open up with the tentacle tongues. Blade 3 is the one with Dracula. Though there was a Pomeranian that also had a tentacle tongue.


RyantheAustralian

Was Dracula in that?? I thought it was Deacon Frost?


mojolikes

Deacon Frost was the bad guy in the first film (played by the kid from the Gate). Blade 1 - Deacon Frost Blade 2 - old aristocratic head of the vampire organization Blade 3 - gen x vampire organization awakens the original vampire


LunchBox3188

I've lived in houses with birds for years and I NEVER knew their tongues were like that. I wish I still didn't know.


hsteinbe

This species of parrot has a tongue like that, not other species.


LunchBox3188

I looked it up. This is a Lorikeet. Their tongue is like that so the can eat the nectar out of flowers. Thanks for the information, though! Have a great day!


alwaysiamdead

I refuse to believe that, it clearly is a demon who eats souls.


LunchBox3188

Can't it be both? Maybe nectar is the soul of the flower?


Klatterbyne

Lets them really tongue punch those plants, right in the orchids. Really gets the stems quivering.


madtraxmerno

Why are you the way that you are


threecolorable

Most bird’s tongues are *not* like this. Not my cockatiels or budgie, and also not any of the African grays, cockatoos, macaws, or parakeets I follow on Instagram. I saw something elsewhere in the comments about this being an adaptation to help this type of bird drink nectar or something


CtotheW

Only lorikeets have tongues like this. They do eat nectar extensively and the tongue barb of nectar doom is certainly an interesting adaptation. They eat fruits and bugs too but focus on nectar and making noise. Their shits are disgusting and squirt messily and splash. They're also super inquisitive and goofy and awesome. God tier rimjobbers.

Phew. I saw the same comment and I had gone and looked it up after I made my first comment. I suppose I should reverse that order in the future and Google before I comment. Thanks for the information! Take care!


Rupertfitz

I just had to go irritate my IRN to check if he was a demon. All other signs pointed to yes but it seems his tongue is normal.


eowynnord

Ikr. A very "Thanks, I hate it!" Moment


Mcspank1

Wait, what the fuck?


VaATC

Other have presented above that this is a lorikeet and their tongue is like this so they can get to the nectar of plants they enjoy. Not all, and maybe just this one, species of parakeets have this type of tongue. Edit: I just did a cursory search and it looks like they may eat both pollen and nectar.

its not a parrot. they dont have tongues like that, is a type of lorie


DerNubenfrieken

A Lory is a parrot


Ok-Comedian-2940

But they're nectar eating parrots which is why their tongues are so odd.


that1prince

Here’s the thing…


crushingducks

Looks scary, but its shaped like that for eating pollen. It should work like a paint brush Edit: a little more info since people will see this. It did develop in loris and similar also in honeyeaters, inhabitating oceania and australia, making use of the same ecological niche of consuming nectar and pollen as kolibris in the americas and sunbirds in africa. This special bird is lori-kind, eats also fruits and insects and, apparantly, *ass*


VaATC

I think it is that they use it to get to the nectar which helps them move the pollen around when the go from flower to flower. Edit: just looked it up and it looks like it may be both


HarEmiya

Pollen *and* ass. EDIT: Oh wow that blew up fast. Please don't waste awards on me when the comment above actually has interesting info. All ya'll horny, wonderful folks.

One of their products can lay eggs in its user, and it looks kinda like that tongue. Edit: my bad, I don’t think Bad Dragon makes it (not sure anyway) but [here](https://www.etsy.com/market/ovipositor) are a bunch of similar products. They are called ovipositors or ovipositor dildos.

Unable-to-Escape

Oh Thank God its a nectar eating bird I would never let my budgie lick me again if that was his tongue


codon011

Not really indicative of parrots in general. Lorikeets are a bit odd in that they are nectar eaters rather than fruit, seed, and nut eaters like most other parrots.


LostinSZChina

That's really interesting, but the next question that come to mind is why they still have the beak that other parrots have? What use is it to have a break that looks like it would be pretty efficient at cracking nuts and seeds but is not part of their diet? Any divergence in the lorikeet beak as opposed to other parrots?


Ornery-Creme-2442

Seeds can be cracked with non curved beaks too. And ravens have even gotten around breaking nuts without parrot-like beaks. Beak shape varies alot in bird and while diet plays a big role so does anatomy and other things. Parrots use their beaks alot to move and climb. So their hooked beak functions as an additional grip. Also a stronger bite for protection. Parrots beaks are quite precise despite the strength, they can also use it for delicate activities like grooming. I haven't analysed their beaks so I can only make assumptions. I'd assume that maybe the jaw muscles might be a little less developed. But I'm sure it's still useful for them. Edit also their size doesn't make them a candidate for eating nuts. Except pine nuts most would be to big.

Ok so I had a Macaw parrot growing up and currently have a cockatiel and neither of their tongues are like this lol


MagicUser01

Thats because this bird has another diet. This is a black capped lory and they mostly eat pollen.

Chromattix

I was about to say the only other parrot I've known to have this kind of tongue is the rainbow lorikeet which also feeds on pollen/nectar. The "brush" makes it more effective at picking that shit up.


novachamp

They also eat the souls of the living


Hyzenthlay87

I babysit a conure and his tongue isn't like that either (as another reply said, these parrots have a different diet). Conure tongues are cute. They're not wet, but they're soft and he loves licking, so you frequently get "mlem" on your hands or even your face if he's feeling friendly. He also likes to bite of course, lil bastid XD


Taweret

My parrot likes to mlem my phone. Because their tongues aren't wet, it really does act like a finger and he can interact with my phone screen (mostly just accidentally opening apps, haha).


FadedQuill

I’ve got an African grey, and same. Just a regular old parrot tongue! That red parrot is a lory and they have evolved a brush-tipped tongue because their diet is flower nectar.

regretallthewaydown

Misleading title. The way it's worded it sounds like it's showing you an example of a typical parrot's tongue. While the bird in the gif is a parrot, it's one of a specific group of parrots (lories and lorikeets) that have adapted their diets to eating fruit, nectar, and pollen. Those dietary adaptations have developed in parallel with anatomical modification, like you see here with the specialized tongue.

Yeah, most of them don't have tongues like that. This is a Lory or Lorikeet of some kind, and they mostly eat pollen and nectar using their specialized brush-like tongue to "scrub" it out of flowers. Edit: It looks like a purple-bellied lory (Latin name *Lorius hypoinochrous*) if I had to guess.
