Caption: Mammalian tongue papillae. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a fungiform papilla (yellow) and a filiform papilla (spike, top left) from a mammalian tongue. Fungiform papillae contain the taste buds. Filiform papillae sense pressure. The papillae have a scaly appearance because they are constantly shedding their top layer of skin.
