There is a tongue of many animals including humans but why the snake tongue is divided into two parts. This question had scored trouble for scientists and biologicals for many centuries. What does it work in different directions, two parts of the snake's tongue which always remove in the air? Is there any connection with two horses of two ears and nose? Or does it taste more to eat and drink it? Let's know what is the reason for splitting in two parts of the snake's tongue?

Professor Kurt Schiak of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology in the University of Connectic, says that the story of dividing the two parts of the snake (snakes) starts from the time of dinosaur. This is about 18 million years ago. Do not come under the feet of their big and frightening relatives, so they lived in a pit or a bill in the soil. The body of the snake is like tall, thin and cylinder. They do not have their feet. Vision is blurred without light. The tongue of the snake does her nose. To take this smell, it is waved by removing the tongue in the air.

France's Negative Bernard Germaine Day Lecpede had told that Aristotle believed that the brilliant tongue in two parts of the snake is to take double fun. 17th century Naturalist and Specialist Geivani Batista Hodirna believed that the snake raises dust from their two tongues. Because they are constantly creeping on the ground. At the same time, other scientists believed that they catch insect-kites with their tongue.

A funny theory also came that the snake kills poison with his tongue. It is believed that this wrong information was spread among the famous writers Shakespeare through their stories. He said that the snake kills his enemies by touching his tongue. At the same time, French Naturalist Jean Baptist Lamb had given a little definition. Laamb used to say that the snakes feel some objects from their tongue because their vision is disrupted in low light. This same theory of Laann was considered to be true until the 19th century.

In the two parts of the snake, the real work of the bunty tongue was known after 1900. This tongue of snake called Vomeronasal organ. This organ is found in many organisms who are crawling or almost crawling on the ground. Many of these mammals also come. Not only do the monkeys and humans do not get it. Vomeronasal is under the chamber of the snake snake. It waves out in the air by pasting the particles that understand the smell on both parts of the tongue. The smell sticks with these particles. After this the snake knows what is next, or what can happen.

In the two parts, there are the ability to recognize the odor, not for the particle taste from Vomeronasal organ. After realizing these particle odor, when the snake goes into the mouth, it goes to the message that what is next or what can happen. There is a threat or any organism worth eating. When the snake waves their tongue in the air, they separate both parts far away, so that they can understand the smell from the big terrain and direction.

Both parts of the tongue can also feel different odors. These scent pasting particles to different parts of Vomeronasal organ. It works fine in the same way as our ears Ears understand the voice coming from different directions. They can also know their direction. Therefore the snake avoids the danger using this tongue. Finds food and smell the smell of female for reproduction.

Like the lizard, the tongue of the snake does not work. They wave both parts of the tongue fast and down in the air. Many times a part goes down the other. When they waved in the air, there are two separate wartises (vortices) in the air. That is, two small fans. They draw this smell towards them. As soon as the smell sticks to the tongue goes to the mind.

The benefit of depositing a different kind of smell from both parts of the tongue is that the snake can find out that in which direction they will benefit and threatened. When the matter is to be urgent and evolve, then the organ of many organisms becomes inactive. But in the case of snakes, the bunty tongue in two parts is not less than a natural wonder. Kurt says that it has become confirmed that the tongue of snakes is not to smell for taste. Which is a very essential part for the survival of this creature.
