This raises the possibility that the magnitude of RTF seen during SICS in rattlesnakes may also be influenced by an effect of chemical cues on the chemoreceptive systems that mediate tongue flick behavior.
Several other types of sensilla are also found on the antenniform leg tip, some of unknown function, and others that are morphologically similar to contact chemoreceptive or hygroreceptive sensilla, though this latter function has not been demonstrated with electrophysiology (Foelix et al.
