The macro – and micro - anatomy of the tongue were studied in African pangolins. Eight (8) healthy pangolins, Manis tricuspis, were used in this study. The average body weight and body length were 1449.42 ± 220.15 g, 115.75 ± 6.75 cm respectively.  The average tongue weight and length were determined to be 19.75 ± 0.85 g and 66.38 ± 11.92 cm respectively while the relative tongue weight (RTW) and relative tongue length (RTL) were 1.10% and 56.38% respectively. The findings of this work make available baseline data that could be significant in understanding the anatomical adaptation for the diet and tongue
