Do you know?

  • Snails have 33 teeth in a row and have maybe 80 or so rows. The number of teeth it has depends on the type of snail, but the average snail has well over 1000 teeth. The teeth of snails are contained in rows called radula. These rows shift and allow missing teeth to be replaced.
  • Humans have two incisors or front teeth in their upper jaw but Kangaroos have 3 pairs of incisors in their upper jaws and 1 pair in their lower jaw. When their teeth get too dull to grind up food efficiently, Kangaroos simply grow new ones!
