Sep 12, · A salamander of the genus Hydromantes captures prey by launching its tongue as a projectile: The skeletal part of the tongue is shot forward, unfolding the rest of the tongue, until the outer portion lands on the prey, sticking to it. The figure shows the acceleration magnitude a versus time t for the acceleration phase of the launch in a typical situation. Larson, and J. M. Cheverud.

University of California Publications in Zoology – University of California Publications in Zoology – Jun 01, · The safe harbor hypothesis includes the suggestion that parental care causes the embryonic stage to be the safest harbor, and, therefore, egg size will increase in populations with parental care to decrease the duration of subsequent, higher risk stages.
