Today we have more tooth talk for EleFACT Friday. Elephants have hypsodont teeth, which are high-crowned and extend unusually far above the gumline. Teeth like this provide plenty of extra tooth material to combat the wear and tear that comes from abrasive substances that the elephants chew on. Their teeth also continually grow and are similar to those of cows and horses. Although Rana is already in her mid 60s, she still has a full set of healthy molars.
The photo below is of Rana, celebrating her healthy teeth with a cheeky face.
