Longest Tongue in the world: K Praveen of Virudhunagar, Tamil Nadu, has the world’s longest tongue, measuring 10.8 cm, according to the India Book of Records.
According to the India Book of Records, a 20-year-old guy named K Praveen from Thiruthangal in Virudhunagar, Tamil Nadu, has a 10.8-centimetre-long tongue. As a result, he is eligible for the world record for the longest tongue.
Which is the longest tongue in the world and who has been given the world record?
Nick Stoeberl of Salinas, California, holds the current Guinness World Record for the longest tongue (male). In 2012, Nick’s tongue was measured at 10.1 centimetres.
According to the University of Edinburgh, a human tongue is approximately 8.5 millimetres for males and 7.9 centimetres for females.
On February 26, 2021, Praveen’s tongue was measured from the tip of the stretched tongue to the back section of the tongue.
Last year, Praveen, a BE robotics student, broke the Asia Book of Records by touching his nose with his tongue 219 times in one minute.
He can’t only touch his nose with his tongue; he can almost touch his eye. He’s working hard to get his tongue to touch his eyelids.
He claims that he can draw and write letters with his tongue as a brush.
With his extremely long tongue, he can easily touch the side of his nose and elbow. He can hide his tongue in his nasal cavity with practise, and he refers to the prank as the “invisible tongue.”
Praveen has never been bothered by his long tongue.
Due to a lack of funding, Praveen has been unable to contact the Guinness World Records. He is raising funding to showcase his accomplishments around the world.
