* This trope technically applies to humans, as we use ours not only for processing food - the default job for tongues in the animal kingdom - but also for the completely unrelated task of speech.
* Forked tongues of snakes and monitor lizards are that way because they help the animal smell things. Each tip of the fork picks up molecules from the air, which are drawn into the oral cavity where their vomeronasal organ can "sniff" it. Whichever tip smells more strongly of prey or danger, that's the direction the reptile moves towards or away from.
* Cats have bristled tongues to maximize their usefulness for grooming purposes.

* One of the antagonistic alien species in ''WesternAnimation/MenInBlack'' is a sort of six foot tall anthropomorphic lizard-salamander thing. Apparently their tongues can be fired from their mouths with enough force to knock out a human being, among other uses.
