The difference between cat and dots is large, but they do share one thing in common – neither one can create suction when they drink. So how do they bring liquids into their bodies? The BBC answers this question by looking at their different drinking styles in super slow motion.
Cats have tiny hooks on their tongue made up of keratin. When a cat drinks water, the tongue licks the surface, and the tongue spikes hook the water into the mouth. A dog is not as delicate as a cat when it drinks. A dog’s tongue is plunged into the water, and the tongue forms a bucket, scooping the water into the dog’s mouth.
