CE: Science of…Animal Teeth

Thursday, January 27, 2022
3:00 pm4:00 pm

Smile! As humans we probably hear this and let our teeth beam for that family photo. But, would you feel the same if you’re a rodent with orange teeth? Or, would you have a mouth large enough to hold 50 teeth like the Virginia Opossum?
Animal teeth, or the dentition (arrangement of the animals’ teeth) is a huge indicator of what a specific animal is eating. Teeth also provide huge insight into the evolutionary heritage of that animal. Through this Science Of episode we will dive right into the mouth of many different animals here in Nebraska. What types of teeth do fish have? Do frogs have teeth? How strong is the bite force of a Mountain Lion? Join us and find out!
