Ultra cuteness: Animals sticking their tongues out

Simply irresistible pics of happy animals sticking out their slurp-y tongues -- what could be cuter?
By Jennifer Hayes

Need a cure for the Monday blues? Our photo feature is here to help provide a brief diversion from your workday routine with a small dose of squee, wow and awwww. Enjoy!

When people stick their tongues out, it’s typically considered rude; however, when a rabbit does it, it’s just adorable. It’s the same thing when the subjects are dogs, cats, horses, goats or even a pig. Luckily, our photographers were around at just the right moment to capture these images of cuteness. Enjoy these photos of tongues in action.
