Somewhere in the history of the world, a rumor started that salmon have teeth on their tongue. Not being a salmon aficionado myself, I first stumbled upon this fictional fact in a textbook published by Cambridge University Press in 1897, called The Vertebrate Skeleton, which included the teeth rumor as well as this delightfully creepy diagram. Intrigued, I googled "salmon tongue teeth" and found several modern sites that still claim it's true, even though the more professional and reputable sources say no. If that's not evidence of the longevity of tall fishing tales, I don't know what is!
This piece of embroidery uses single strand black DMC floss on cream cotton, framed in a 6 inch hand painted wooden hoop.
