Slow-Motion Video Shows A Chameleon Shoot Out Its Superpower Tongue

Slow motion video shows a chameleon shoot out its superpower tongue

A chameleon's tongue is nearly two times the length of its body and it can shoot out that slimy sticky thing at 41 G, roughly four times the maximum acceleration of a fighter jet, with deadly quick accuracy: its tongue can reach its prey in 0.07 seconds. Basically, it's an insane, superpower-like weapon to have.

Here is Earth Unplugged showing the tongue action of the chameleon in slow motion. It's both impressive and gross at the same time.
