The lingual papillae of adult bactrian camel were studied using light and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Five types of lingual papillae were found on the dorsal surface of the tongue. Two types of filiform papillae could be distinguished. The filiform papillae had a primary papilla and a few slender secondary papillae. Fungiform papillae were...

The tongue's structure of bactrian camel was studied using gross anatomical and morphological methods. The result shows that the tongue consists of root, body and apex, as is likely same with other ruminants in the basic structure. The papillae include filiform (Fl), lenticular (L), conical (Co), fungiform (Fu) and vallate papillae (CV). But the to...

... It presented dorsal and ventral surfaces and a median groove was present on the dorsal surface (Fig 1). Similar findings were obeserved by Ye et al (2008) in Bactrian camel. Although, Ye et al (2008) reported crinkled appearance of the apex of tongue on dorsal surface, but no such observations have been recorded in the present study. ...
... One of these adaptations is that the dromedary camel has very sturdy mouth to maintain the efficient feeding of thorny and rough-stem plants which naturally grow in the arid regions (El Sharaby et al., 2012). In addition, several studies on the mouth of camel have described the anatomical features of camel tongue (Qayyum et al., 1988;Takehana et al., 2001;Peng et al., 2008;Salehi et al., 2010;El Sharaby et al., 2012;Thanvi et al., 2020). With regards to its dorsal surface, similar to ruminants, the tongue of camel is characterized by the presence of fungiform and vallate papillae, and the lack of foliate papillae as well (Thanvi et al., 2020). ...
