One of the latest pictures to go viral is a close up, microscopic image of a cat’s tongue. What makes this image particularly satisfying is that it appears to be lots of little tongues joined together to create one massive tongue.

The image was captured using a technique known as scanning electron micrograph (SEM) and was magnified at a rate of 15 when printed at 10 centimeters wide. Whatever the technical details might be, it’s still interesting to see what a cat’s tongue looks like up close, besides the times when you cat licks you after drinking out of the toilet first.
