Photograph - Light Micrograph
Cat tongue tissue. Polarized light micrograph of a transverse section through a cat's tongue. The outer stratified epithelium (right) has spike-like (white) keratinized papillae, used by the cat to preen its fur. Below the papillae of the epithelium are striated muscles arranged in vertical, transverse and longitudinal blocks (all yellowish-orange), and scattered lingual glands. Magnification: x44 when printed at 10 centimeters across.
