A team of scientists led by Dr Sunghwan Jung of Virginia Tech has identified and modeled the fluid dynamics at play when dogs (Canis lupus familiaris) drink water. Dogs and cats need to move fluid against gravity into the body by means other than suction; they do this by lapping fluid with their tongue. When a dog drinks, it curls its tongue posteriorly while plunging it into the fluid and then quickly withdraws its tongue back into the mouth. During...
