This is amazingly off topic... Can't Post

but absolutely fascinating. Yes, yes, Ro's been...well, not thinking this time so much as observing.

Did you know...cows' nostrils are positioned at a slight diagonal, and are exactly the right size and shape (sort of an elongated oval) and at the right angle for them to stick their tongues right up them? As in, their tongue fits in like a key in a lock...a perfect match! How fascinating is that?!?

Which led to me thinking about human nostrils and fingers...and now I'm wondering how many other animals there are out there who have nostrils just the right shape for...well, whatever body part is relevant. Too cool. I'm guessing there's not enough biologists on here who could answer that question.

No, really, I'm *not* procrastinating anything...
