Which mammal has three kinds of teeth that are all about the same height? Here’s a hint: You’re one of them!
Which mammal has three kinds of teeth that are all about the same height? Here’s a hint: You’re one of them! Humans have incisors, canines, and molars. Some animals have larger teeth than ours. Animals with large incisors eat plants, chewing up hard nuts and seeds. Long canines are for eating meat—and tall molars are for grinding up grass and other leafy plants.
What kind of animals have two incisors that grow out of their mouth, pointing up at the sky? And which mammal has canine teeth that stretch down toward their belly? Come along for the story of how our mouths evolved with the foods we eat, one pair of teeth at a time.
A scientific exploration of what our teeth tell us about our preferred diet, Tooth by Tooth educates readers on what each type of tooth is best suited to do. Written by Sara Levine, illustrated by T.S Spookytooth, and published by Millbrook Press.
