Tongue - Ventral Surface

Elevation of the tongue reveals the ventral surface. Extending from the ventral tongue to the floor of the mouth is a fold of tissue called the lingual frenum. At the base of the frenum attachment on the floor of the mouth are small, bilateral elevations known as the sublingual caruncles, duct openings for the sublingual and submandibular salivary glands.
