About this work


Differential interference contrast (DIC) micrograph of a longitudinal section of a cat tongue. This sample is from a vintage prepared slide from the period 1870 - 1905. A single rasping papilla (backward facing spine on a cat's tongue) typical of a carnivore can be seen, together with some of the underlying muscle structure.
