Teeth Is there a difference between the teeth of carnivores and herbivores?

Carnivore: eat meat only

Herbivore: eat plants only

Examples of Carnivores:

The largest dinosaur tooth ever found is from a T-rex, it was 30 cm long!
Sharks have 5 to 15 rows of teeth. because they have so many teeth and they only last one week before a replacement comes they may go through 30,000 teeth in a lifetime.

Examples of herbivores:

these pictures show cow and horse teeth. cows don't have top teeth at the top of their mouths.

What I have found out in my research:

  • cows don't have top front teeth
  • if an animal doesn't eat meat they have flat teeth
  • if an animal only eats meat it has pointy curved teeth which normally grow back
  • if it eats meat and plants (an omnivore) needs both types of teeth.
