A bear had emergency surgery to remove its tongue after it became so heavy that it lolled out of his mouth and dragged along the floor.

Vets believe that the bizarre swelling, which weighed 3kg (6.5lb), was without precedent.

"I've worked with bears for over 10 years and I've never seen anything like it," said Heather Bacon from the University of Edinburgh's royal school of veterinary studies. "It's pretty astonishing."

That swollen tongue must have been... unbearable.

Joking about the poor bear getting it's tounge chopped off seems very tasteless.

Can you scream without a tongue?
(I could google it, but won't)

I was going to make a joke about the bear not being able to scream and then realized I had no idea if it was true...

Well if I, for one, had been been blessed by Providence with a 3 kg. tongue, I would have gone straight to the porn industry and made my fortune.

Of course, it doesn't make any sense for a bear, but hey, God also created the duck-billed platypus.
