Big Mouths

Get ready to peer down at teeth, tongues and tonsils as the biggest mouths in the animal kingdom open wide for The Most Extreme.

Produced by NHNZ

Whoever offered the advice ‘never eat anything bigger than your head’ had obviously not met an Argentinean wide mouthed frog… or a python for that matter, or a pelican… nature is full of big mouths, and animals with intriguing ways of getting food from the outside world into the inside of their stomachs.

Using an array of physical tools ranging from double-hinged jaws, to three foot filters, an even a flip top head, animals have extreme adaptations too to get their dinner down faster.

So sit back and marvel at the anteater’s extended tongue and the crocodile’s snap-lock smile when The Most Extreme goes in search of the world’s biggest mouths!
