Pardon my ignorance… A lip is apparently a very sensitive tactile device - as it at-least serves to warn it's owner they may just be about to consume something that could cause injury. Primates (including humans), dogs, cats, sheep, buffalo, elephants, some fish, octopodes - to name a few, have a lip.

How have lips evolved to be nearly ubiquitous across animals? Why have they evolved into a beak/bill in some birds & fish? What niche/purpose do they fulfill?


I think what you are looking for can be found https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lips#Functions_of_the_lips and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beak#Functions pretty easily.

To summarize, lips:

  • Mainly useful in mammals
  • Food intake
  • Articulation
  • Tactile organ
  • Erogenous zone
  • Facial expressions

Beaks:

  • Found in birds
  • Feeding
  • Defense
  • Manipulation of objects
  • Communication
  • Heat exchange

What is a lip(s)? A set of muscles around an orifice that can close said orifice.

How about a way to close a hole so that not everything can get in but what we want - to eat, breathe, drink?

The fact that they are also sensitive is just needed so that you can more precisely operate them for whatever need you have.

    You can always find compromises and come to a common solution. If you don't like something, try something else.

    Do you do SEO on your blog? I want to do it, but I don't know where to start ... I easily found your site in the search, but it looks like my blog is not even there :(
