She calls herself "Long Tongue Lewis," and she isn't exaggerating.
Adrianne Lewis, 18, can touch her eye with her 4-inch tongue.
The Michigan teen can also touch her nose, her chin and her elbow with it.
Lewis says she wants Guinness World Records to measure her tongue. The current record-holder is 24-year-old Californian Nick Stoeberl, whose 3.97-inch tongue appears in the 2015 Guinness Book of World Records.
Lewis' mother, Julianne, told Barcroft TV that she first noticed that her daughter had a big tongue when she was about 10 or 12 years old.
"She would stick her tongue out, touch her nose and touch her elbow. I think she was kind of discovering herself," Julianne Lewis says in the video above.
Her mum says long tongues run in the family, but Adrianne Lewis suspects her licker may have grown longer with use.
"I think that with time, and with me being the weird kid that I was and always sticking out my tongue, it could have stretched," Lewis said.
