    Here's a picture with copy write acknowledged as being by Susanne Russo 2013 on the Beauty of birds site under the hand rearing section. @Heather2131 is this what you mean?

    birds are weird. I once had someone phone me hysterical that the drake they had off me a couple of weeks earlier had prolapsed intestines... a little detailed questioning &I was able to reassure owner that they had seen penis... and to their relief/horror it retracted again. I now tell all new duck owners as if not had ducks before its a terrible shock!
    bird anatomy can be v surprising

    :risas3::risas3: @sunnyring Classic!
    Years ago I used to be an animal welfare officer I got a call to go see a horse who had a huge tumour on the inside of the back leg. Off I trundle ..... field fecking full of horses all black and white. Examines everyone of them not a thing wrong field is in the spare land alongside an estate filled with towns folk not country bumpkins like me. Little old lady at field fence calls to me off I trot. She says ooo it's this horse over here .... look at that tumour .... I touched it and the poor thing was obviously in pain and it was hot to the touch so I phoned you up straight away..... Errr madam I think you can get arrested for molesting a horse that is a stallion, I suggest you wash your hands! She was feeling his testicles!! Not surprised he took off at a rapid rate of knots :risas3:

    @Zoe220615 Actually haven't heard of a confirmed case of a broken tongue in a bird. Lacerated, burnt, cut and also partially removed by another bird yes but not actually broken one. The bones are tiny and not like our bones and neither are they strung together like our bones. One of the tongue bones is a weird Y shape!
