Okay, I saw a picture of a goose in Newsweek... anyway, it obviously had teeth on the sides of it's tongue, feathery, icky, scary teeth.... A while ago I saw a BYC picture of a scary, strange goose, that i thought was cute except for it's tongue/teeth... someone informed me that all geese have those on their tongues, but actually owning a goose, and being bitten lots of times, i was sure that my goose didn't have these crazy tongue protrusions.... anyway, after the Newsweek article, i went outside with a mission, pinned the goose, and pried his mouth open. Lo and behold, my goose has these icky things too... what are they? why does he have them? what is the deal!!!!????!
