At over 6'6", Lickitung's tongue is twice as long as its body. Sticky saliva coats its tongue, which causes a tingling sensation when touched. It is used for cleaning, capturing prey, and exploring its environment. Lickitung remembers things by their texture and taste, although it apparently dislikes sour things. The tongue is both dexterous and powerful enough to lift people, as seen in the anime. Lickitung can be found in grassy plains and meadows.
