Goose Tongue: The Truth About Their "Teeth"

Geese do not have teeth.

Instead, they have tomia, which are sharp, horny projections on their tongues.

Tomia help geese to grip and tear their food.

They are also used to help geese filter food from water.

Tomia are made of keratin, the same material that makes up human hair and nails.

Tomia are not as strong as teeth, but they are sharp enough to do the job for geese.

Geese tongues are an important part of their anatomy, and they help geese to survive in the wild.

Tomia are a fascinating adaptation that helps geese to eat their food.
